Developmental Editor Cardiff

Even in the early stages of work on a book, authors aren’t necessarily alone in the process. Often, they keep developmental editors in the loop to help see the bigger picture of a work in progress. Development editors aim to improve the overall structure of the story, and also help create clarity by removing any unnecessary content or inconsistent information. They may work with a writer to encourage major revisions from the original draft, but these editors are experts in providing constructive criticism to improve a literary work.

If you need a developmental editor to keep you on the right track, visit Reedsy and find the right person for the job. We have an incredible lineup of developmental editors in Cardiff who have contributed to the success of writers in various genres and have impressive industry experience working with top publishers.
