Services

“I think I need a proofreader – but maybe I need an editor.

Hang on, what’s the difference?”

The editing pyramid:

Developmental editing

is a service that some writers, particularly book authors, need to obtain professional feedback and advice on big picture items. Think structure, plot, characterisation and pacing.

Line editing

is in-depth editing at word and sentence level to improve flow, clarity, tone and fluency. This kind of editing is sometimes described as being “more art than science” as it can be quite involved.

Copyediting

is more technical and mechanical. It’s the stage that focuses on style and formatting to ensure accuracy and consistency. This gives your writing a professional and tidy finish.

Proofreading

is the final error-check that all writers need to invest in! It’s dedicated quality control of text and layout to guarantee perfection and give you peace of mind.
