Developmental Editing

You've completed your first draft – but is it ready to go out into the world? Developmental editing will explore the big-picture elements of your story, from plot and structure to theme and genre, to move you on from your first draft.

Story and plot

Structure and pacing


Point of view

World building

Genre and theme

On completion of the edit, we will return your manuscript with an accompanying editorial report. Using our feedback you will then redraft your manuscript to enhance the big-picture elements.


Typical project prices range from £12-£17 per thousand words.

The cost of a developmental edit will vary according to word count, the level of work required, and the estimated timeframe for completion of the project. When you send us a sample of your work, we will assess your editorial requirements and provide a full quote.
