Editorial Services

Every client and project is different, so it may be challenging for you to fit your exact needs into a neat category. If you’re not sure what you need, reach out. Let’s talk about it!

To explore the possibilities, you will have the opportunity to share your work—or a representative sample. (Your work is always confidential.) I’ll then assess the piece’s length and complexity to produce a quote and timeline for you to consider. Finally, we’ll decide if together we can make great things happen.


Copyediting
  • corrects spelling, grammar, punctuation, and usage issues
  • smooths awkward sentence structure and word choice
  • ensures consistency in formatting
  • points out structural and organizational problems
  • could include light fact checking
  • could include a style sheet
Developmental editing
  • addresses the big picture
  • supports the writer’s voice and vision while serving the reader
  • addresses inconsistencies in voice and tone
  • fixes organizational and structural issues
  • improves overall content
  • includes a written evaluation, markups, or a combination of both
Content reviewing
  • ensures pedagogically sound teaching and learning tools
  • addresses correctness, clarity, and conciseness
  • checks for completeness in coverage of key terms and concepts
  • adjusts materials to appropriate levels of difficulty for middle school, high school, and higher education courses

Proofreading
The last step in the editorial process, proofreading is the correcting or marking of digital or print copy to identify errors that were introduced in readying the final document for publication or that remain after copyediting.

Authoring/Writing
Writing is the use of compiled notes, research, interviews, and other information to generate written products, such as white papers, biographical sketches, journal articles, and learning materials.

Mixed
Some projects require more than one type of editorial service. For instance, an author’s work may require copyediting for a polished product, then a proofreading after the manuscript has been laid out for print. In such instances, each level of service is considered a separate task that is agreed upon with its own conditions and specifications.
