Manuscripts and Short Works
Full Editorial Developmental Package
This service includes a full developmental/global edit. The commentary, on-text notes and edit suggestions, as well as a full written report will focus on big picture issues (such as plot, narrative line/arc, character development, pacing, structure, organization), as well as story and craft elements (dialogue, scene/setting, tone, story, continuity, rhythm/prose, etc.).
You will receive a summary report (about 5-8 single-spaced pages), and be able to participate in three telephone calls (one before, one during, one after); plus, unlimited emails for a few weeks after return of materials.
⋅ up to 280* pages - $950.
⋅ Additional pages - $2.50/ each
⋅ Line and copy edits (including PUGS - punctuation, usage, grammar, spelling; word choice, syntax, etc.) — additional $1.25/page
