A developmental edit involves heavy rewriting of the material, where necessary. This service attempts to restructure the work in an organized flow and enhance all areas that do not move well or transition effectively. It includes all the same elements of a copyedit, and also applies extensive editorial enhancements to the text. Oftentimes this incorporates completely redrafting some areas, and adding only paragraphs in other areas. This service essentially requires a book doctor to examine and remedy the prose in its entirety. An appropriate, fully comprehensive evaluation accompanies the edit.
