Dramatic Writing and Nonfiction Editing Services

In March 2011 Updates on February 16, 2016 at 12:32 pm

Work one-on-one with an experienced editor.

For nearly a decade, Thaïs has edited a wide range of nonfiction articles and creative manuscripts including novels, short stories, plays, screenplays, memoirs and musicals. She enjoys working one-on-one with diverse writers from around the world. She has evaluated manuscripts at all stages, including early drafts, middle drafts, final drafts, and second printings.

For dramatic writing and nonfiction, Thaïs currently offers two major editing services: line-by-line copy editing and content analysis.

  • Copy Editing: Every writer needs an editor. Copy editing allows a fresh pair of eyes to search your manuscript line-by-line for typos, grammatical errors, and formatting issues before you send your work out for production or publication.
  • Content Analysis: Many writers seek professional advice on how to improve their style, content, and craft. Take your manuscript to the next level with an in-depth analysis of what works and what does not. Notes focus on organization, theme, characterization, description, voice, pacing and more.

Through both services Thaïs will read your manuscript and promptly deliver extensive written feedback. For more information about these services and rates, please email
