Developmental Editing

Curly Quotes Editing's developmental editing service description graphicAlso known as Content or Structural Editing, Developmental Editing is for you if you have a completed, self-edited manuscript and feel ready to begin cooperative work with a professional editor to further tighten your story. You will receive highly detailed feedback, an annotated manuscript, and an editorial report summarizing the overall work. This type of editing, depending on the size of your manuscript, can take up to six weeks to complete.

After Developmental Editing is completed, your manuscript will feature sharp prose, lifelike characters, real settings, and a narrative you can continue to be proud of.

Your vision for your work will be tangible and publishing will be in reach!
