Developmental (Structural) Editor/Editing: is a thorough and in-depth edit of the author’s manuscript. It is a complete examination of all the elements of the author’s manuscript, from single words and the phrasing of individual sentences to the overall structure and style of the manuscript (as it relates to the author’s style of writing). It can address plot holes, gaps or inconsistencies, problematic characterization, readability, paragraph cohesiveness, etc. Developmental editing focuses on the manuscript’s storyline, big picture, and plays a deeper role in the development of the manuscript.
Copy/Line Editor/Editing: focus on the manuscript from the perspective of grammar, punctuation and diction (i.e. word choice) meant to improve readability. They look at grammar, punctuation, spelling and the need for substituting weak words and phrases with more powerful alternatives that brings out the overall message or intent of the manuscript. They ensure that the manuscript follows style rules as part of the rules for editing according to publishing industry standards.
Proofreader/Proofreading: catches spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors. They also look at format to ensure that all elements are included and appear as they should (i.e. spotting things like a word or sentence repeated twice or missing words, a headline failing to show as bold, scriptures missing the version (KJV, NKJV, NLT, etc.), quotes missing who said them, etc.).
