So in many ways, a developmental editor is like the structural engineer of the publishing world. And if you're looking for the best developmental editors that Bristol has to offer, you can find them on Reedsy.


A developmental editor gives your book symmetry and order. They will make sure that your book has a steady footing, or they will revise and improve on your existing one.

They will probe your character arcs and push you to make them more realistic or enjoyable. To get all this done the right way, you'll want to hire a professional with experience in your genre and target market.
