Hire the best developmental editors in Birmingham


When you start writing a book, your thoughts are clear and focused — you practically live in the pages of your story. When you finish writing, though, it’s difficult to remain objective. Consequently, some structural issues can slip through the cracks.


That’s why, before you even consider copy editing, you need a developmental editor. They take a “big picture” look at your manuscript to help fix plot holes, character issues, and any other issues or major inconsistencies. A developmental editor will help you follow through on a subplot that got lost along the way, or better develop a character. They’ll ensure your scenes are clear, and descriptions aren’t confusing.


Here at Reedsy, it’s our job to help you find the best developmental editors in Birmingham. We personally vet our professionals, and only accept the top 3% of applications — many of whom have worked on some of the best publications today. So, sign up to Reedsy today and connect with the perfect Birmingham developmental editor for you.
