Developmental Editing

$0.014/word

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.

Copyediting

$0.012/word

Will your grammar, punctuation, or sentence structure pull readers out of your story?

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

Proofreading

Only available in combination with copyediting

Did you miss any typos or grammar issues?

I will edit for surface-level mechanics that may have been missed or introduced in copyediting.
