Developmental Editing

A big-picture look at your content and its structure to maximise its impact.

Premium service

If you want it done for you

Developmental editing gives you honest, objective, big-picture feedback on an early draft to help you develop your content. I will personally review your work, make changes and provide recommendations for further improvement.

The Benefits:

Clarifies the central point or argument and strengthens its impact
Ensures the text meets its aims and connects with its intended audience
Improves content, structure, sense, tone, flow and overall consistency
All changes are tracked so you can review the changes made

Editorial report

An editorial report can be produced alongside a developmental edit summarising the main recommendations and the reasoning behind them. This is particularly useful if you will be writing regularly and want more insight into the things that the developmental editing process considers.

What’s included:

A summary of the overall findings and recommendations

A description of what’s working well

Detailed discussion of what isn’t working well and why, and suggestions for improvement

A standalone editorial enables you to review my recommendations and implement them yourself. This may be the service for you if you have a limited budget or already have significant writing experience.
