Plagiarism isn’t just copying whole sentences and paragraphs verbatim. Though clients will sometimes ask for source articles to be rewritten, they’re not asking you to plagiarize -- they’re asking you to find more facts, inject more personality, or frame the article in a different way. You’re using the source information, but writing in your own voice.

For example:

SOURCE SENTENCE: 

Kim Kardashian is a reality TV star and businesswoman, but lately, she has stepped out of the limelight to focus on her family.

PLAGIARIZED SENTENCE: 

Reality TV star and businesswoman Kim Kardashian hasn’t been in the limelight much lately and prefers to concentrate on her family.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO INSTEAD:

The Kardashian family are practically American royalty, having built a massive media empire out of their reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. But after a decade in the spotlight and on the front pages of every magazine, is fame finally taking its toll?
