An experienced editor will read and critique your manuscript, assessing it for salability and analyzing major elements like plot, dialogue, and characterization, or structure, coherency, consistency, and organization. You will receive an easy-to-follow, 1-2 page critique of your manuscript that will highlight major issues to be addressed and suggest fixes and revisions.
We'll edit for style, tone, word choice, and sentence structure. We will also have a hard look at the elements of fiction or nonfiction as appropriate — things like plot, dialogue, and characterization, or structure, strength of argument, and clarity — and make lots of helpful suggestions. You'll receive critique comments throughout the body of your work, and a short summary critique too. You'll get a stronger, much improved manuscript as a result. Finally, we'll take a look at spelling, grammar, and typographical errors, tidying up these issues so you can concentrate on the creative process.
We'll spot and correct all those errors you've seen too many times to notice anymore — spelling mistakes and grammatical, typographical, and other linguistic errors. We'll clean and polish your manuscript so you can send it off with confidence.
