Developmental Editor Bristol

Writing a good story is like building a house. You need a strong foundation and a good structure to hold it up… and that is where a developmental editor comes in.

A developmental editor gives your book symmetry and order. They will make sure that your book has a steady foundation, or they will revise and improve on your existing one. They will ensure that your voice, perspective, and style are all consistent. Developmental editors also work on your plot to ensure there are no major holes, and refine character development arcs to make them more realistic and interesting. To get all this done the right way, is important to hire a professional with experience in your genre and target market!

Of course, hiring a developmental editor with that level of experience can be challenging for many writers. That’s why at Reedsy, we vet our editors super carefully to make the hiring process easier for you. Hire a developmental editor from Bristol from our platform and be one step closer to perfecting your bestseller!
