Developmental Editor Chester

You’re done with your manuscript and you want to make sure that the pacing, plot, and characters are all effective. In other words, you need a developmental editor in Chester to help with the big-picture stuff in your book!

Developmental editors are not your run-of-the-mill editors; they focus on the content and structure of your book, taking a deep dive to ensure your book works on every fundamental level. A developmental editor will challenge you, asking you to justify certain characters in your story, making sure your plot flows and that your readers can follow along through the end. Due to the intense nature of this role, you will need to find a true collaborator: someone who is passionate about your story, and who will take the time to read and reread to help your work reach its full potential.

Hiring a developmental editor can be tough — but not at Reedsy, where we only allow the most qualified professionals onto our platform. Sign up today and get one step closer to creating your bestseller.
