    QUOTE: The Editor who reviewed your article suggests that you address the following issues: Please correct all of the spelling and grammar errors in this article.

    I didn't find any spelling mistakes, although there might have been one typo. I rewrote a bunch of sentences, removed duplicated information, and corrected some run-on sentences (I was horrified that I did that).

    I know from experience that it is difficult for a writer to see their own errors. Please can you check that I haven't missed anything.

    Thank you.

      "Entry to Diversity Lottery Is Free, but Attornies and Immigration Organizations Ask You to Pay,"
      Should be Attorneys.

      Same paragraph, "There are various immigration attorneys and organisations " should be organizations.

        Thank you. smile

        I'll fix attorneys. Was on automatic. Ey normally changes to ie when plural. There are exceptions.

        S and Z is the difference between Brit spelling and American spelling. I thought Brit spelling was now accepted. Not so?

      After looking at the article, I can tell you that to edit all of the grammar and structural problems would take a great deal of time.

      I see numerous areas where you have misused commas.  Some of your sentences are very poorly structured as well.

      For example, where you say "Entry is free and entry forms can be found..........."  There should be a comma after the word free. 

      Abovementioned should be two words.

      Where you say "Entrants need a high school diploma equivalent should say "that is equivalent to"

      I also see places where you should have created lists rather than repeating the same wordage over and over such as " I wasn't....".

      You also repeat the term Diversity Lottery far too many times.

      I suggest you run this article through Grammarly and also find ways to avoid repeating certain phrases so much as this damages the basic structure of your sentences.

      I am amazed that with all of these issues an editor even put this hub on a niche site.  Don't mean to be insulting, but I thought that hubs that made it to the niches were basically free of extensive errors.

        I find your comments interesting.

        Please feel free to share your displeasure with the people who selected it for a hub.

        That said, thank you for your input. You are correct about the run on sentence and I disagree with you on the rest.

        For what it is worth, I am going to ask for it to be removed from that particular niche site anyway.

        So, inadvertantly, that should make you happy. Oh, and for the record. Run on sentences is an American rule, not a British one.

          I was a Language Arts teacher, so am pickier than most when it comes to grammar, structure, etc.  Run on sentences may be a British rule, but if the majority of your readers are American, I suspect most would feel they are incorrect.

          We all have our opinions about things, so you certainly are free to disagree with mine.  However, the items I noted are clearly grammatical errors.  I didn't invent them, I was just noting them.

            ??? You were a "Language Arts teacher," but you don't know what a run-on sentence is? Wow! It's actually an American rule, and Hubpages caters to an international market with India having a very large readership. India uses Colonial English as does most of the world. Hubpages does accept it.

            You actually corrected my (not me) not putting a comma before a clause. You were correct. That is what a run-on sentence is.

      There were a few. I fixed them by rewriting some of it and having the help of a few here. I'm just waiting to see if anyone else sees anything before submitting it again.

      Thanks for looking. Much appreciated.
