Substantive Editing

With a working draft, a substantive edit can help:

  • identify and/or solve problems with possible gaps, overall clarity, or accuracy
  • reorganize paragraphs, sections, or chapters to help improve narrative, presentation, or flow
  • revise or suggest rewriting segments of text to improve readability and flow
  • assign new levels to headings to achieve logical structure
  • track continuity of theme or plot and help resolve any discrepancies
  • incorporate responses to queries and suggestions
