Who needs a proofreader and/or copyeditor? 

The list is almost endless. Think of the places you have seen errors. Everything in print needs to be proofread. No matter how well written the copy, it is often difficult for the writer to focus on writing, editing, AND proofreading in order to do the job well.

Writing and editing are broad; proofreading is detailed.

Our eyes see what we think we wrote. It is easy to miss errors, even after going over the copy more than once. A second set of eyes is priceless.
