Developmental editor for hire in Denver

Calling all bibliophiles from the Mile High City! There’s only so much Rocky Mountain explorations and craft brewery hops you can do on a weekend, so why not finally put pen to paper with the help of a developmental editor? A developmental editor is that guide who will help you navigate the trickiest part of the woods: ushering you through the thorny treetops of plot, characterization, and linguistics to make it to the other side safely.

You’ll want to look for a developmental editor who is not only an expert in your genre, but can help identify a target audience and place your work in the context of publishing industry trends. This will help make sure your book is current. Too often writers can either get so blinded by their own style or an aesthetic by favorite older authors that they miss contemporary approaches. Leave it to your trusty developmental editor for hire in Denver to keep you on the pulse of the moment.
The question is: are you willing to hear them out? One thing that helps is to make sure that your developmental editor is speaking from experience and not just their own taste and bias. That’s why, here at Reedsy, we only accept professionals who have walked the walk – that is, worked on real books with real, bestselling authors. Take the next steps in your own journey with a developmental editor by signing up with us here today!
