Editing & Proofreading

Are your ideas not coming across how you imagined? Is your audience struggling to understand what you're saying?

Why use an editor?

The world of creative writing is changing. Traditional publishing, though rewarding, is a slow and difficult process. Self-publishing is becoming a popular option for authors, but with it comes an oversaturated market. If you hope to compete, through either method, your manuscript needs to be at its absolute best. ​

It can be difficult or even impossible to see our own writing mistakes. Having a professional look over your work, or rewrite it if necessary, ensures that your content is error-free, and most importantly, readable for your audience.

Whether you need a complete rewrite, a comprehensive edit, or just a quick proof-read, get in touch to find out how I can make your work the best it can be!

What are the types of editing?

Developmental/Substantive Editing:

This type of editing deals with 'bigger picture' issues. 

  • Plot & chapters              

  • Characters                     

  • Tone, Voice and Style   

  • Overall edits before publication

Copy/Line Editing:

This type of editing deals with writing style and readability. 

  • Sentence structure            

  • Spelling & grammar           

  • Word choice and strength

  • Tense, tone, flow and clarity 


Proofreading is the final level of editing completed before publication. A proofreader will check your work for any typos, mistakes, or formatting issues. 

Beta Reading:

Many authors ask beta readers to read their books before publication. A beta reader will be in your target audience and will know your genre, so their comments are extremely helpful. 

Editing rates are based on your manuscript length and genre, as well as the extent of editing required. Please send a sample of your manuscript to allwritepoppy@gmail.com for a quote. I look forward to reading your work!
