Developmental Editing

You've either completed a draft or are in the process of writing. Developmental Editing can involve transforming your ideas into a completed work, whether your end goal is a book, essay, article, pitch, or report. Whether your draft is complete or not, Developmental Editing includes rearranging sections and chapters, trimming the fat, and filling in the gaps. I'll provide meta-level guidance while helping you straighten out the details.

As your Developmental Editor, I will tailor my services to match the needs of your work. They may include research, rewriting, restructuring, and line editing. I will assess your manuscript and explain the steps I will be taking before guiding you through the process.

My insight, experience, and intuition will support this critical stage of honing and finessing your story. 

Pricing is subject to a sample review.
