Looking for help developing your prose? Or does it just need a polish? I offer a variety of editing services.
- Developmental/structural editing
Big picture: content and structure
- Stylistic editing
Smoothing out the edges: clear, powerful sentences
- Copy editing
Fine tuning: grammar, punctuation, spelling (copy editing and stylistic editing often go hand in hand)
- Manuscript evaluation
An assessment of a manuscript’s strengths and weaknesses, along with suggestions for improvement (less intensive than an edit)
A complete reworking of a rough draft (more intensive than an edit)
A final check before the manuscript is published
