Substantive (Developmental/Structural) editing shapes the draft, then line editing and copy editing attend to sentence-level fluidity language, and correctness, and proofreading confirms your work is good to go out into the world!

Personalized Writing Coaching & Editing

Support for you AND for your writing.

Where many services offer writing coaching, and many other services offer editing, it is far less common to find them offered together.

All of our creative team at One Lit Place are professional writers, seasoned writing coaches and instructors, and long-time editors across the genres. They are a particular hybrid who well understand that writers require support for themselves as people to help them cope with the ups and downs of navigating the writing landscape in addition to their projects requiring editorial acumen and high-level skill.

This seamless support enables us to support you and your writing as a organic unit and focus on giving you the confidence, agency, and motivation you need to keep up your work while simultaneously helping you improve your writing for publication.

With our writing coaching and editing services—for creative, academic, and business or nonfiction writers— you can look forward to getting specific support for every phase of your writing- from inception through publication and beyond.

  • Brainstorm ideas, get insights, guidance, project management, and accountability.
  • Get clear next steps on your work-in-progress with a manuscript evaluation or developmental feedback.
  • Have your work edited at every level: substantive editing (also called developmental or structural editing), line and copy editing, and last-step proofreading to prepare your work for the public.
  • Keep organized during the submission process with your query, proposal, and agent or publisher spreadsheets; let us build you an author website, or discuss a marketing plan that gets your book noticed by the right reader; and let us format your book and advise you on how to self-publish 

Writing is a glorious form of expression that sets you apart and includes you in an elite category of thought leaders and change-makers. But it is challenging to do it alone.

We are here to make sure you get the work done and feel good while you’re doing it.
