The developmental edit is about improving the core of the manuscript. It is sometimes called a ‘content’ or ‘substantive’ edit and its definition varies from editor to editor. At Prince, this is the most intensive service offered next to our Full Package option.

Our editors will be working on the development of your characters, plot, and themes while reviewing the overall coherence of your manuscript and its purpose. We will also provide suggestions and some research notes that may correct any outstanding issues.

The world and characters that you have created matter to us because we believe they are the heart of your manuscript. Without those elements, there is no story to be told.
