Developmental Editing

This stage of editing occurs in the midst of, or immediately after, writing your first draft. We will help you with:

  • Plot or argument continuity

  • Character design

  • Narrative style

  • Broad grammar & syntax corrections

Proofreading

Proofreading is the final stage of editing before a document is published. This is a great service for self-publishers or printers who want someone to check for:

  • Consistent formatting & spacing

  • Last-minute grammar & spelling errors

  • Table of contents & index accuracy

Line Editing

Line editing is the stage that most people think of as "editing," when you are preparing your document for publishing. We provide notes and guidance on:

  • Grammar & sentence structure

  • Overall narrative voice & imagery

  • Fact-checking

Poetry Editing

Poetry is a different beast than prose, but we're glad to wrangle it for you. We will polish your poetry by exploring your use of:

  • Imagery & metaphor

  • Pacing & meter

  • Emotional impact
