Editorial Assessment

If you’re a first-time writer, an editorial assessment is probably the most valuable editorial intervention you can seek. The editor will carefully comb through your manuscript and evaluate all its core structural elements — plot, pacing, characterization, worldbuilding, dialogue, etc. — in a one-off report. You’ll learn more about writing craft in that report than through a hundred writing courses. Learn more.

Copy Editing

As opposed to developmental editors, who look at structural and “big-picture” issues, copy editors focus on the mechanics of the language: grammar, punctuation, spelling. They’ll also ensure consistency of tone, style and format and enforce the rules of a style guide, such as the Chicago Manual of Style. Learn more.

Developmental Editing

A developmental edit is a thorough and in-depth edit of your entire manuscript. The editor will examine all the elements of your writing, focusing on your overall structure and style but also going deep into line-level edits and offering rewrite suggestions. It is an indispensable first step before sending your manuscript to a copy-editor or proofreader. Learn more.

Proofreading

Proofreaders act as separate, final pair of eyes that will catch all tiny grammatical, spelling or punctuation errors that slipped through — or were introduced — in previous editing rounds. They will not look at your manuscript’s structure or your writing style, but instead focus their sharp eyes on small errors that ultimately make a big difference. Learn more.

Indexing

As a litmus test, libraries and bookstores often turn to a non-fiction book’s index before deciding whether to buy it. A poorly structured (or absent) index can hurt your chances of being selected. It takes a lot of experience to know what a reader might be searching for, and how best to categorize and describe the text’s contents. Reedsy’s indexers can create an index that gives your book a genuine professional finish. Learn more.
