General Proofreading

Accuracy

  • Check that all text is correctly copied from the original docs
  • Check all spelling
    • Spelling of text
    • Spelling of names (check back to drive or the summary document)
  • All Minion Pro + correct letter sizes
  • For poems, the author’s name is ~ italics

Embedding and overlay text

  • Make sure: “No errors” in bottom left corner
  • Check that ALL images ARE EMBEDDED (important)
    • Windows > links > right click on image > embed link

Layout Aesthetic

  •  Make sure nothing is too close to the edges. Otherwise, it may get cut off.
  • Move the artist name close to the page #, unless it has been put in a specific place for aesthetic purposes.
  • If you are working on a two-page spread combining two single-page layouts, make sure the layouts are in the same font.

Overall Issue

  • Table of Contents spelling of names and titles
  • Sponsors page correct
  •  Centerfold placed correctly
  • Special mention to Creeley poet, including copyright
  • Special mention for each student Creeley Poet – under their name on their page for their poem
  •  Volume # and issue # correct
  • Front and back covers
  • Page #s
    • Left page #s are EVEN, right page #s are ODD
