Types of Editing Services
With so much on your plate, it’s not easy to get to the heart of your most important ideas. Don’t waste time on those early drafts. As your collaborator, we’ll be there before you ever put pen to page. We’ll help brainstorm, listen, ask questions — then work with you to craft your thoughts into themes and arguments that are clear and original expressions. We’ll expand your research where it needs more, and, based on what we discover together, we’ll develop a unity and structure. So when it comes time to write, your mind will be clear, your ideas focused — and you will be ready to create something of meaning.

Congratulations! You’ve just finished a draft of your first novel…or you’ve got a great idea for something, but you’re not sure what form it should take. Maybe you have scribbled down dialogue for a play or lines for a poem, but it just doesn’t sound right yet. Call an Editor can help.
Creative writing isn’t easy. Mostly, you’re working on your own, trying to craft and structure your thoughts and words into something with meaning, cohesion, and feeling. Some days it flows, other days you can stare at a blank page (or screen) for hours. Whatever you do, don’t let it drop – creative words are important.
How to take that next step? You need the right kind of support to get that idea in your head into a draft on the page. Transform that draft into a polished piece of work. And that work into a published manuscript.

Whether you are just starting out on a first draft of fiction, a script, or a poem – or in the final stages of getting ready to send it off for publication — we can help. We get your ideas flowing, with questions on narrative voice and goals. For early drafts, we offer concrete suggestions on structure and development.

Most of all, we treat all the work we view with the utmost confidentiality, so you can be assured your ideas will remain your own.
