EDITORIAL SERVICES

Manuscript

Evaluation

An editorial letter that addresses macro-level issues of story structure, plot, and characterization, complete with pointed advice for revision and a list of helpful resources.

Developmental Editing

A thorough and comprehensive edit that includes specific and pointed marginal notes with an editorial letter to help guide the revision process.

Line Editing

Not only focuses on line-level issues of grammar and clarity, but also on beat- and scene-level craft and storytelling improvements. Intended for manuscripts with a strong structural foundation.

Copyediting

In a copyedit, grammar and consistency take priority. This is typically the second-to-last pass in the editorial process. Aside from language, syntax, and style, craft issues are not addressed.

UNSURE OF WHERE TO START?

Loni is a joy to work with and a consummate professional. She puts an incredible amount of care into every manuscript. Her editorial instincts are solid, and she’s one of the best editors on our staff list. I couldn’t imagine The Parliament House without her.
