Sample: Substantive Editing

What It Is:

Extensive edits and constructive feedback on an excerpt of your work (no more than 10,000 words) designed to polish your writing while strengthening your manuscript.

What You Get:

Considerations for your manuscript excerpt’s concept and intended use, content, organization, design, and style. Substantive editing ensures what appears in writing is accurate, easy to follow, fit for purpose, and free of error, omission, inconsistency, and repetition. The goal is to make your manuscript excerpt functional for its readers, not just to make it correct and consistent. Substantive editing is almost entirely analysis-based, whether at the document level or the paragraph, sentence, or word level.
