||I have ticked the boxes under 'areas of work' in which I've had specific experience or training as an editor. But I offer generalised book editing and manuscript assessment services. These services can be described as developmental. Developmental editing is concerned with the structural or ‘big-picture’ aspects of a manuscript; how the writing works as a whole. It can be defined as a set of tools which assist writers to overcome obstacles in the writing process, to take the steps they need to take to complete their project and maximise the appeal of their writing for prospective publishing. This work is guided by respectful communications, follows clear steps and produces critiques whose aim is simply to assist writers to achieve their goals for the project.
