Editorial Assessment. $0.016/word (divided into two payments). Typically 4-5 weeks turnaround time. Includes:
- a close read of your entire ms, focusing on developmental elements (character and plot development, pacing, voice).
- an editorial summary letter, which will details recommendations for big-picture revisions.
- an optional 45-minute Zoom or phone call to discuss the edit letter and address any questions you may have after reading it, as well as to talk about a revision game plan.



Developmental edit. $0.022/word (divided into two payments). Typically 4-5 weeks turnaround time. Includes:
- a close read of your entire ms, focusing on developmental elements (character and plot development, pacing, voice, setting, dialogue, and other elements of craft and story).
- a longer, thorough editorial letter, which will detail my findings and recommendations, and any questions that came up as I read. I will also include a list of conventional grammatical errors to watch out for —i.e., perpetual semi-colon misuse, a word or phrase used repetitively or incorrectly, etc.
- developmentally focused in-line comments, questions, and suggestions on the Word doc file of your manuscript, via track changes (these are not line edits).
- an optional hour-long Zoom chat or phone call to discuss the edit letter and address any questions you may have after reading it, as well as to talk about a revision game plan.



Substantive edit. $0.035/word (divided into three payments). This one is the most comprehensive and includes everything included in the developmental edit, followed by a read-through of your subsequent revised draft (revision review), as well as a line edit (such as in the attached sample) via track changes. This package typically takes a minimum of twelve to eighteen weeks weeks, depending on your writing/revision schedule (4-5 weeks for the developmental edit, 6 weeks for you to revise—and that’s on the low end, 4-5 weeks for me to complete the revision review and line edit).
