Writer Coaching

Everyone gets stuck now and then. Whether you need help defining your direction or just need an accountability partner, we’ll get you back on your path and help you stay there! Often paired with developmental editing.

Developmental editing

When you know what you want to do but don’t know where to start, developmental editing will help you create a solid outline and structure to work with.

Got a completed draft but not sure about writing style, content, or organization. This, too, calls for developmental editing.

Stylistic editing

You have completed manuscript. You’re confident that you’ve added everything you need to, and you like the structure and organization. But what about paragraph organization and structure? Transitions between sections and paragraphs? Stylistic editing (aka, substantive or line editing) is the answer.

A stylistic edit will also tackle redundancy, jargon, sexist language, awkward construction, excessive use of passive voice, wordiness, logic, tone, and more. Can be paired with copyediting.

Copyediting

Your manuscript is solid. It says all it needs to. Sections are organized and transitions are strong. It’s time to polish the sentences! A copyedit will correct for errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation, style, usage, sentence structure, sentence length, and paragraph length. Our most popular service!

Fact-checking

If you want readers to trust what you say, double-check your facts before publishing. A full fact-check digs deep into your manuscript, ensuring concepts, quotes, physical descriptions, product claims, and more are accurate.

A light fact-check reviews easily verifiable facts, such as names, URLs, and dates. Available with copyediting.

Proofreading

This is the last review of your copy before it’s published. Ensure it’s the best it can be by having this vital final check. Proofreading includes correcting copy for typos, spelling, grammar, punctuation, usage, and style.
