The Foundry: Developmental Editing

The Foundry — developmental editing for fiction writers

In a developmental edit, we take a close look at your plot, characters, relationship arcs, perspective, and voice. Most authors start with this service as our editors may recommend significant structural and narrative revisions. As such, it can be a waste of time and money to begin with a line edit at this stage.

In addition to a written critique, you will receive a marked-up copy of your manuscript with comments added throughout, including scene-level feedback and pointers for recurring grammatical or mechanical issues. (Our narrative-assessment service, by comparison, does not include scene-by-scene commentary.)

Starting from $0.009 USD per word.
