Professional Editing Services
by Made for Success

Whether it’s editing a book manuscript or corporate marketing materials, even the most experienced writers stop to self-inquire: Do I need a developmental edit or a copy edit?

The fact that you’re even keen enough to identify that these aren’t the same type of edit is an indication that you’re on the right track. And that curiosity has led you here!

Once you understand the difference between the two types of edits, your project can go to the next level.

Let’s talk more about what each editing service entails, and you should be able to determine which is the best fit for your needs!

A History of Editing Award-Winning Manuscripts

Call it a smidgen of obligatory horn-tooting, but our manuscripts have repeatedly been decorated with numerous prestigious awards. This is largely a testament to the talented authors that we’ve had the good fortune of working with, but also showcases our commitment to excellence in our editing services.

Types of Manuscript Editing Services

What’s the right kind of editing service for your project? First, get to know the different varieties of editing services that you can tap into whether it is a book manuscript editor or editing for corporate marketing materials to Fortune 500 standards.

Copy Edit

Copy Editing a manuscript is a detailed line-by-line review, focusing on spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Our expert editors at Made for Success use the Chicago Manual of Style to ensure accuracy and consistency.

Developmental Edit

This is where editors start to really begin breaking into the flow of thought. Prepare for your manuscript to undergo a powerful round of feedback, with an emphasis on structure, flow, and content. Developmental edits ordinarily focus on enhancing the overall narrative and ensuring your story resonates with readers. When Made for Success editors perform a Developmental Edit, they also include a Copy Edit to their workflow.

Proof Editing Layouts

When you’re near the publication stage, getting a Proof Edit of your manuscript is essential. Interior designers can often introduce minor errors which a Proof Editor is trained to catch. Get your book ready to print with this comprehensive layout proofing service. If there are any errors, we’ll catch them and ensure your book's layout meets professional standards.
