Development

Manuscript Development takes the document as a whole and seeks to fortify its argument for clarity and cohesion. My suggestions focus on aspects that prevent the argument from meeting the reader clearly and convincingly, including structure, narrative, evidence, style, and tone.

Full Revision Plan

I provide practical suggestions and detail them in an editorial letter so you know exactly what revisions to make.

Big-Picture Perspective

Focus is on the macro-elements of a manuscript (sections + chapters) to ensure that each piece contributes purposefully to the larger goals of the manuscript. 

My suggestions:

9

Articulate underdeveloped ideas and suggest ways to strengthen them

9

Brainstorm strategies to fortify the argument and its effectiveness

9

Suggest revised argument framing, chapter structures, and table of contents
