An opinionated edit provides feedback from our editor on the content of what you have written.
In an opinionated edit, the editor will ensure that your text is suitable for your target audience, will highlight areas of plot, pace and characterization that do not ring true and which need attention, and will look at the dialogue and tackle its content and pace.
The editor will mark all changes on an electronic copy of your manuscript so that you can see exactly what changes have been suggested. The editor will also supply global notes on structure, style, narrative and potential problems, but the editor will not rewrite your manuscript for you.
This is an independent, in-depth look at your manuscript by an experienced editor, which aims to provide an unbiased, realistic view of your manuscript by a publishing professional. Note that the Opinionated Edit also includes a Copy Edit.
