Build Your Dream Business By Looking At The Big Picture

Take your editorial biz to new heights with the ultimate advanced editing and manuscript evaluations system.

People All Over The World Have Established Careers In Editorial With Advanced Editing And Manuscript Evaluations

Want to achieve business growth and financial independence? Advanced editing and manuscript evaluations is a self-paced program designed to increase your skillset, grow your income, and diversify your business so you can tailor your editing services based on client needs.

Developmental editing and manuscript evaluations are both services with a common goal: to improve the big picture of a story or message. As a developmental editor, you provide a service to authors that offers detailed, page by page feedback on structure, story, or message. Manuscript evaluations diversifies your services and provides a more economical choice to authors by producing an overall report on an author’s story as a whole.

Both of these services are designed to provide an author with the feedback they need to become successful, but at varying costs and levels of depth.

LEARN FROM AN EDITOR

Up-to-date Editing Training Taught By A Working Editor

Hi, future editors and evaluators!

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 on a creative level, and to develop close relationships with writers as you both move through the process of creating a work of art.

You can become an editor if you have the passion to understand what makes a story so captivating to its audience. This program is perfect if you are just starting out in editorial, or if you want to add more value to your editorial services.  

Developmental editing and manuscript evaluations are rooted in the same understanding of story and messaging. While they have some things in common, they are different high-value services you can offer individually to clients who need them.

If you’re ready to take the leap into big picture editing, I’d love to help you achieve your goals. See you in class!

“It helped me understand the difference between a developmental edit and manuscript critique better, so I feel more confident to offer a critique as well. That’s a definite benefit, as it gives me clients who’d like feedback but can’t afford a developmental edit.”
