PROFESSIONAL EDITORS

You are encouraged to master the art of scholarly writing on your own. The world will expect you, as a college or seminary degree holder, to be an effective writer. In tough cases, it is possible to hire professional writing, editing, proofreading, design and documentation help. However, Trinity does not recommend, endorse or guarantee the work of any professional editing company. If you choose to employ a professional editor, you are responsible for the choice, the cost and the quality of outcome.
