A note on our editing process…
Recording Base will edit your story for grammar, spelling, style, and SEO while doing our best to keep the tone and personality of the piece intact. We’ll try to work with the author on any edits, but cannot make promises they’ll get final editorial control.
We generally re-write headlines and subheads to conform with our style guide and SEO best practices.
We don’t condone or actively practice censorship, but Recording Base reserves the right to exercise editorial judgment.
