Even more so than with novels and other literary genres lyrical copy editing requires sensitiveness for the personal style of the author. Sensitivity and empathy for the personal language world are therefore the most important aspects for a successful editorial.
Pointed use of stylistic devices
With our lyrical copy editing service we would like to help you to find the appropriate form for everything you want to express in your poem through pointed use of symbols, metaphors and measure.
We will comment on:
- Rhyme scheme
- Strophic structure
- Rhetoric figures
- Coherence of form and topic
Extensive compilation of hints and suggestions
All suggestions and annotations will be provided directly at the respective passage of the text as well as in an extensive compilation of comments. We gladly answer all of your questions concerning the implementation of our suggestions.
Proofreading according to Duden-recommendations
Lyrical copy editing also contains final proofreading of the script. Being a member of the branch association of freelance copy editors (VFLL) our proofreading is based on the recommendations in the 25th edition of „Duden“.
