Choose the Level(s) of Editing to Suit Your Needs

Developmental Editing

Is your story working?

I will focus on your story’s overall structure—plot, character, setting, etc.—as well as on clarity and story logic. I will provide comments throughout the manuscript and, if needed, at the end of the document offering suggestions for improvement.

I will edit for grammar, style, and word usage using The Chicago Manual of Style, Merriam-Webster's dictionary, and my own expertise.
