Frequently asked questions

Structural editing is a comprehensive process of refining the overall structure, coherence, and effectiveness of a written work. This form of editing focuses mainly on the pacing and organization. Rather than solely addressing surface-level issues like grammar and punctuation, structural editing delves deep into the fundamental components of the text, ensuring that the narrative flows smoothly, engages the audience, and achieves its intended purpose. In essence, structural editing aims to elevate the manuscript to its highest potential, shaping it into a polished and compelling piece of literature.

Developmental editing refines your overall plot, characters, structure, and content. On the other hand, structural editing only focuses on the flow and structure of the manuscript.

Structural editing considers the book in a cohesive entirety while copyediting focuses on individual paragraphs and sentences, addressing spelling and grammar errors. This means that while individual paragraphs may undergo restructuring for improved readability during copyediting, a copyedit does not address the structure and the flow of the entire manuscript.

Several indicators suggest that your manuscript requires structural editing. If you notice inconsistencies in plot development, pacing issues, or character arcs, or if you feel that the overall flow of your narrative is disjointed or lacks coherence, it is best to hire professional editors for structural editing. Additionally, feedback from beta readers or peers can point out structural weaknesses. Ultimately, if you want to enhance the overall readability, engagement, and effectiveness of your manuscript, investing in structural editing is a wise decision.

The cost of structural editing can vary depending on several factors, including the length of the manuscript and the complexity of the content. Typically, structural editing rates are calculated either per word, per page, or as a flat fee for the entire manuscript. To determine the exact cost of structural editing for your manuscript, it's recommended to request quotes from multiple editors or editing services and inquire about their pricing structures and any additional fees that may apply.
