As developmental editor, I see both the forest and the trees.
I work with writers to develop, organize, tighten, and strengthen the overall structure of their work, and then I help them dig in and hone each paragraph and polish every sentence. The end product is your words, your voice, your message clearer, sharper, and better.
I edit all genres but I specialize in nonfiction and academic editing. I am well versed in AP, CMS, and APA publication styles.
Project editing: I can work with you from first idea to finish product. Market research, competitive analysis, manuscript review, schedule management, manuscript and post-production editing, coordination and supervision of copy editors, proof readers, indexers, and other contractors.
Developmental editing: Help with concept development of your nonfiction or fiction manuscript, improve the organization, strengthen its structure, and edit for consistency, clarity, voice, and tone, in addition to grammar, usage, punctuation, and spelling.
Substantive/content editing: Edit for structure, consistency, clarity, voice, and tone, as well as grammar, usage, punctuation, and spelling.
