Developmental editing is essentially the first stage in the manuscript life-cycle and occurs while the manuscript is in the drafting stage.

Developmental editing will often include everything that’s included in our proofreading and copyediting services.

  • Developmental Editing includes reviewing / correcting:
    • setting
    • timeline
    • characterisation
    • plot
    • story structure
    • presentation
    • factual accuracy
  • Developmental Editing DOES NOT include formatting or style-guide edits
  • If the estimate is accepted, 50% of the agreed cost is payable when the manuscript is submitted, with the remainder due on completion. A final word count will be completed and the invoice will be adjusted accordingly.
