I can’t tell you how excited I am to be offering my new program, Advanced Editing and Evaluation (AEE). Developmental editing and manuscript evaluation are two sought-after skills in the publishing and content industries. They are both excellent ways to grow your business, increase your income and build your clientele. What I love is that they will allow you to work with publishing houses, indie writers, agencies, businesses and entrepreneurs.
The skills you will learn in AEE will allow you to edit content by looking at it from a higher level. Unlike proofreading, copyediting and line editing, you do not perform direct edits on the content. Instead, you provide your professional feedback and recommendations on story, structure, and logic for the writer to implement. As you can see, it’s an excellent way to build on your existing editorial skills.
I decided to put the two skills together in one program because they complement each other very well. Developmental editing and manuscript evaluations are rooted in the same understanding of story, messaging and structure. Both require you to know the various conventions of a fiction story or piece of nonfiction content. While they have some things in common, they are separate services that each offer unique value to your business and the client.
As I develop Advanced Editing and Evaluation, I am focused on creating something that will propel your editorial skills to another level so you and your business stand out in the content and publishing industries. I hope you’ll join me in the program!
