Developmental Feedback

Manuscripts at various stages of inception benefit from insightful constructive feedback. Our editors provide both margin comments and fully written notes to assist you in the development of your project: When we provide deep feedback on your developing manuscript, we:

  • identify the project’s purpose and organization
  • indicate developing themes, plotlines and characters
  • address cohesion, pacing and flow
  • illustrate how to structure and enhance elements of the work to ensure the manuscript is unique, dynamic, and purposeful
  • address issues of clarity at the line level
  • suggest next steps and revision strategies.

The reason developmental or deep intensive feedback is useful to writers is it helps you refine and shape your early-stage project (book-length fiction and nonfiction as well as short story, essay, article and poetry) and gives structured guidance and actionable steps that serve as a “road map” as you enter into revision.

Having this map to follow makes the revision process much easier and focused; plus, having your editor on hand to answer questions during that process is invaluable for both emotional support and also to help guide the process succinctly and collaboratively.
