Project/manuscript Assessment

This is a money-saving way to receive expert editing advice. This is a good option for those on a budget, or for big projects that need feedback in order to plan on how to best proceed. Some feedback, suggestions, commentary, and an editorial plan are provided.

Developmental Editing: Big picture editing that addresses overall organization, style, tone, impact, and consistency, from beginning to end. Commentary, feedback, rearranging and building of structure, and some mark-up are provided. Questioning and challenging content regarding possible issues or omissions, transitional writing and some rewriting may also be provided. This kind of editing ensures the best possible version of the project is realized.

Substantive Line Editing: Line by line, section by section, line editing provides detailed edits focused on style, tone, flow, and message. Feedback, commentary, mark-up, and suggested rewrites are provided. This type of editing seeks clarity, points out potentially problematic content, and provides additional suggestions for consideration.

Desktop Publishing: For short publications–manuals, booklets, journals, and newsletters. Provide your text when it is ready for publication. Wild Clover Press will provide elements of layout and design in a PDF or epub format.

Proofreading: Mark-up of typos, spelling, and grammatical errors, inconsistencies, and technical issues. The final stage of editing before publication.

Research and Citations: A researcher for writing projects seeks out reliable, sound sources and information to either support, oppose, supplement, or verify information shared in content. And a citation project requires a specific and consistent style and verification of sources and links.


Writing

Original content for websites, articles, newsletters, journals, magazines, manuals, professional documents, internal communications, letters, or books. Tone, style, and message vary according to genre and goal.

Chicago Style, AP, MLA, or your house style.

Expertise: ethics, spirituality, creativity, poetry, art, writing, meditative/healing art; mystical, symbolic and creative tools for self-development and spirituality; grief and healing; astrology; animals, sustainability; lifestyle, and the transformative practice of working with dreams.
