Become an advanced editor with two leading services
Developmental editing is used by book publishers as the first stage of the editing process after receiving a manuscript from a writer. With business and nonfiction content, developmental editing is part of an editor’s role in working with content. Developmental editors work with self-publishing writers to refine their story, as well as with publishing houses, agencies, businesses and entrepreneurs.
Manuscript evaluations are reports containing your professional feedback and recommendations on what works and doesn’t work in a story, and what needs to be improved and changed. Depending on the project, they can range from 4 to 25 pages in length. A manuscript evaluation does not require in-depth, page-by-page edits like developmental editing. They take a shorter amount of time to do, and are very popular with indie writers.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to be offering my new program, Advanced Editing and Evaluation (AEE). Developmental editing and manuscript evaluation are two highly sought after skills in the publishing and content industries. What I love is that they allow you to work with publishing houses, indie writers, agencies, businesses and entrepreneurs.
You can become an editor without any prior experience or a degree with the skills you will learn in AEE. This program is perfect if you are just starting out, or if you want to add on to your other editorial skills.
Developmental editing and manuscript evaluations are rooted in the same understanding of story and messaging. While they have some things in common, such as assessing plot, characters, logic and dialogue, they are separate services that offer unique value to the client.
