EDITING & WRITING:

  • Proofreading & Copy Editing: Correction of spelling, grammar, syntax, idioms, and nuance.
  • Rewriting & Readability: Improving readability or rewriting translations, texts by non-native speakers, etc. 
  • Content repurposing: Rewriting content to change its usage, e.g., converting interviews into articles or book chapters.
  • Manuscript Assessment: Evaluation of copy, structure, content, story, and voice. The editor reads the manuscript and provides detailed notes. Clients can work with the editor or implement the changes themselves.
  • Structural/Developmental Editing: This is the most intensive form of editing because it re-shapes the manuscript by looking at content, structure, organization, coherence, logic, consistency, and voice. Sentences, paragraphs, and chapters may be moved, removed or added, trimmed or expanded. The editor implements the changes with client’s approval.
  • Content Development/Ghostwriting: The writer develops the client’s book idea into a publishable manuscript. The process may include conducting interviews and research, working from notes, drafts, outlines, audio-visual material, etc.
