Thank you for your interest in Gyre Studios. Below is an outline of our writing and editing services, which extend to fiction, nonfiction, marketing pieces, and curriculum. Multiple services may be combined into a single editing pass if desired.
All text changes are tracked. During editing, we will make direct textual changes for minor corrections. Issues we feel need the author’s input to resolve will instead be noted, with suggested fixes as appropriate.
We use Microsoft Word and/or Google Docs for our work but we might be able to accommodate other software if needed.
This type of editing examines factors that affect the entire work. Because of this, developmental editing will generate far more notes to the author rather than direct revisions of the text. It is recommended this be undertaken early in the editing process so major revisions can be made efficiently.
This editing includes restructuring portions of the work to increase readability and ensure a logical flow.
This type of editing is usually performed at the end of the editing/revision process of a piece as the last pass of editing before a work is published.
