Developmental Editing

Description of Service

The Literary Studio’s newest addition, the Developmental Editing service is a report-based editorial service with the addition of editorial comments on the manuscript.

It includes a manuscript assessment and it includes specific comments in the margin of the manuscript from your assessing editor. Comments usually identify locations that illustrate a point made in the assessment report, for example an accidental switch in point of view or a telling, not showing summarisation. Comments also offer suggestions for development, for example prompts to make a scene more immersive by adding background detail or atmosphere.

The service is for those writers who find it useful to have specific examples highlighted on the manuscript.
