Editorial Services - Manuscripts

Copyediting

A copyedit focuses on grammar, mechanics, punctuation, syntax, diction, factual inconsistencies, and minor suggestions of revision when needed. A copyedit concentrates primarily on language and typically occurs after a substantive edit.

Substantive Editing

A substantive edit is an in-depth assessment of your manuscript. This type of editing offers an analysis of characters, plot, sentence structure, narrative, and pacing. Substantive editing provides suggestions for improvement, revision of wordy or convoluted sentences, and rephrasing for clarity and coherency. An editorial letter is included.

 

Proofreading

Proofreading is the last step before publication and aims to correct any errors that were not caught during copyediting or were introduced during typesetting.

 

Editorial Letter

An editorial letter is an unbiased review of your manuscript. It includes a discussion about the manuscript’s strengths and weaknesses and offers broad suggestions for improvement.

Editorial Services - Website and Marketing Content

Copywriting

Clear and concise content for your website, blog, or social media content that engages your audience through your distinctive voice. This service is highly collaborative; the foundation of the content comes from your thoughts and ideas and transitioned into written word.

Does your website make sense? Website UX focuses on the user's experience with your website including the content, visuals, layout, and experience navigating the tools/pages. Rate: $30/hour.

Editorial Retainer

You may benefit from an editorial retainer if you create content daily or weekly. An editorial retainer is a flat, monthly fee that provides you with the option of having your content edited in a same-day turnaround.
