How does proofreading differ from copyediting?
Proofreading involves identifying and fixing grammatical, typographical, and punctuation errors, whereas full-service copyediting includes a broader review of content clarity, wording choice, consistency, and organization (in addition to fixing typos and errors).
Miriam has been a published writer for more than 20 years. Please see the PUBLICATIONS page for a list of published (and broadcast) pieces
that Miriam has written, edited, or produced in recent years.
Miriam's writing is featured in the second edition of the book Blueprint for Greening Affordable Housing, edited by Global Green USA (Island Press, 2007).
She was a reporter and producer for the public radio program Living on Earth for several years. She was also an editor
at Verde Media and a copyeditor for the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI). Since then, she has worked on numerous editorial projects for a variety of clients.
In addition, Miriam publishes The Green Spotlight weblog, and she sometimes writes freelance articles and commentaries, which are published in magazines and other media. Her freelance pieces are often focused on environmental and social issues.
Her areas of interest and expertise include green building and design, green living, sustainable communities, urban planning
and design, environmental/public health, and organic agriculture.
Miriam edits and proofreads documents on an even broader set of topics. For more than three years, she was the proofreader for Flavor magazine, which was published monthly by New Leaf Community Markets.
