Stylistic Editing

Stylistic editing focuses on paragraphs and sentences. I will edit your manuscript to clarify meaning, ensure coherence and flow, and improve word choice in harmony with your voice.

I follow the standards for stylistic editing set out by Editors Canada in Professional Editorial Standards, a document that describes what editors do at each level of editing.

Stylistic editing isn’t done on its own. I perform this level of editing either as part of the substantive edit or the copy edit. I use track changes and comments to communicate with you.
