M A Clarke Scott at Generations Editorial
I’m now offering story/structural/developmental, stylistic and copyediting for mostly novel length fiction. I have been writing professionally for decades, was an academic writer for five years, have been a novelist for eleven years, and have loads of experience as a beta reader, critiquer and contest judge. I’ve taken professional editing courses and I’m an Associate Member of the Canadian Editors Association.
My specialties include romance, women fiction, science fiction, historical, literary, and New Adult. My passion is story structure to maximize your story’s potential.
I provide freelance editorial services and writing mentorship based on my experience as an avid reader and writer. You’ll be provided with an editorial letter that outlines broad overview observations, as well as some specific suggestions on how and where to strengthen the book. In addition, you’ll have line notes through out the manuscript. Areas reviewed include character development, plot structure, style, pacing, continuity, and the ultimate impact of the story. I do not provide “copy edits” on the manuscript, but will mark any errors I note.
