Development editing

Development editing, our most popular offer, can include, but isn’t limited to:

  • A complete read of the manuscript with notes on structure, plot gaps, and character development
  • Chapter by chapter line edits after the development edit, all done in track changes with explanations
  • An interactive, flexible schedule, allowing you to learn and question along the way while working at your own pace
  • Discussions of what may make the work even better, how to develop it further, and where to go once you’re finished with it

The point of development editing is not only to make your manuscript shine, but also to help you learn elements of craft you may be missing. That way, when it comes time to write your next one, your manuscript starts off in great shape.
