My favorite types of editing includes:
- Overall project supervision. This includes editorial calendar development, staff/freelance assignments, and project management of books, websites, and periodicals.
- Developmental editing. This macro level of editing evaluates overall structure, presentation, and approach of a manuscript or document. This high-level feedback helps ensure that the final content is tailored to the intended audience and achieves its communication goals.
- Line editing. This deeper level of editing examines word choice, tone, and focus of sentences and paragraphs to enhance clarity and flow, taking into consideration the intended audience and delivery format.
