Writing, editing and proofreading


The Office of Marketing and Communications provides consultation and/or writing services to assist with your writing projects, from promotional or department brochures, PowerPoints, newsletters and more. To request a writing project, please fill out the Project Request Form and sumbit it to our office.

Editing and Proofing

The colleges strongly recommend that all publications - including brochures, posters, postcards and advertisements - that will be sent to external audiences be forwarded to Marketing and Communicaitons for proofreading and editorial services, even if they are created by an outside writer or designer. Materials reviewed by the OMC staff will be edited according to the CSB/SJU Writing Style Guide and the Associated Press Stylebook and Libel Manual (used to edit all CSB/SJU publications). Graphic identity guidelines and other requirements also will be reviewed.

Submit items for editing/proofing via email or print and mail a hard copy to CSB at Main G20 or SJU at Quad 151, along with the following information: 

  • Deadline date (please allow two weeks for editing/proofing)
  • Special instruction for review
  • Your name and contact information

You and at least one other member of your department should double-check names, dates and phone numbers.

Freelance Copywriters

On occasion, it may be necessary to hire a freelance writer to fulfill project requests.
