Editing

 

Guarantee: Infinite Pathways will provide a free assessment of any one page of poetry or flash fiction, one act of a play, or the first 10 pages of your story (short, novella, or novel) to allow you to evaluate our editor’s work and our ability to communicate prior to purchasing services. Any story material submitted for this offer must be accompanied by a 1-2 page synopsis. Depending on the editor’s current workload, free assessments could take as long as 30 days to be reviewed.  Standard response time is 1-2 weeks.

Copy Editing: The editor will examine the final draft of your manuscript in order to correct errors in textual and visual elements. Using an editorial Microsoft Word’s Track Changes option, she will perform a basic edit of: spelling, punctuation, & grammar. In addition, she will assess your overall formatting: header labels, title page, pagination, chapter heading, chapter breaks, paragraph indents, & line spacing.
