Christine Thom

Clarity. Pacing. Flow.

Writing a book? A play? Business communications?  Present your work with confidence. Editing, particularly developmental editing, is an essential step in the writing process.  As an editor, I’m here to help you succeed.

Business Communication

 

Written communication is central to good business practice. It reveals who you are and what you stand for. Every day, businesses of all sizes rely on internal communication in order to run smoothly, and on external communication to engage with their clients and the general public. Every piece of written communication that you put out projects your business’s values, style, competence, and capability.

In short, your messaging matters. Details make a difference. Readers are influenced by the words you select, the punctuation you use, and the voice in which you present your writing. Awkward passages and grammatical errors can not only distract and frustrate readers and pull them away from your content and message, but also give an impression that contradicts the quality and integrity of your products or services. Why risk that?

You can turn to Stardust Editorial for a professional review of all of your business’s written content at any stage of the writing process. We provide supportive and constructive feedback with our editing services. We’ll help you with those challenging passages and provide the safe space you’re looking for to ask questions, talk through ideas, and revise and review your pieces before you send them out.

With Stardust on your team, you can rest assured that your message will always shine through.

 

Nonfiction

 

Stardust Editorial helps writers write. We empower experienced writers to achieve greater success by providing constructive feedback and insight on their manuscripts or pieces—what’s working, what’s not, why, and ways to solve what’s not working. We will help you bring your concept through from the sentence to the paragraph, from the paragraph to the page, from the page to the chapter, and from the chapter to the manuscript—all with an emphasis on clarity, pacing, and flow. We work with you to ensure that your writing is clear, effective, and engaging.

Whether you plan to self-publish or submit to a publisher, our developmental and substantive editing services can provide you with the constructive feedback and support that will help you feel confident in the presentation of your work, materials, ideas, and messages. We’ll also help ensure that your intended meaning is clear in every instance.

At Stardust Editorial, we work to create the safe and productive space in which you can open further to the creative process and yourself within it.
