But What Exactly is Proofreading?
Proofreading is NOT copyediting...
Proofreading is NOT rewriting content...
Proofreading is NOT making structural changes to a document...
Proofreading is reviewing a final piece of writing, ensuring that there are no spelling, grammatical or punctuation errors. It also includes checking for consistency and formatting issues. It is the last step before publishing.

Actually, you only need three things:
1. A passion for reading and ensuring documents are free from errors
2. The confidence to believe in yourself
3. Training from an experienced proofreader
Tell me if this is you...
If you have answered "Yes" to the above bullet points, then you are already on your way to becoming a professional proofreader.
You only need the right training which will furnish you with the necessary proofreading skills and boost your confidence as a proofreader.
A passion for reading and identifying mistakes, along with the right training, will boost your confidence and give you the skills needed to become a professional proofreader.

Founder/CEO Rocima Publishing
Hi, I am Ashook
I have been a professional editor and proofreader for the past fifteen years and I have worked on manuscripts for writers in many countries including the USA, India, Africa and the Caribbean.
My love for proofreading began at a very tender age. I remember during primary school my favorite book was a dictionary with a black cover. I was fascinated with words and their meanings. I would spend many hours with that dictionary, learning new words and improving my vocabulary.
Later on I realized I was very good with essay and story writing and would even help my classmates improve their writing.
I noticed that whenever I was reading any written content, errors
would jump out at me; I would cringe at the sight of awkward sentences, typos and grammatical errors. This love for proofreading
led me to start a successful book publishing business.
I want to help you to become a professional proofreader. I want to give you the training and skills so you can start your own proofreading business and be wildly successful at it.
