Developmental editing is the process of hammering out the ‘big picture’. It looks at overarching issues such as structure, plot, characterisation, point of view, style, tone, themes, etc.
Copyediting is the process of getting your raw material ready for publication, either in print or digitally. It involves making sure your work reads well and is accurate, consistent and suitable for the intended audience.
Proofreading is the final stage your manuscript or piece of work goes through before it goes to print or goes live online. It’s the last step in making sure your work looks and reads just as you intended.
I also offer line editing – see here for more information!
My undergraduate degree was in Fine Art (Painting), and I still dabble (sometimes literally) in artwork. You can see some of my work here, and I’m happy to discuss commissions.
