Developmental Editor Boston

The best books require a lot of editing, even if you're truly pleased with your project. A developmental editor in Boston can turn your work into a bestseller — and even share tips and tricks with you along the process to hone your individual craft.

The purpose of a developmental editor is to see your story from start to finish. Developmental editors will look at the “big picture” of your story, fixing such overarching and fundamental things like theme, plot, character development, and setting. Your editor should be able to work alongside your creative voice to help you tell your tale without interrupting your individual needs as a writer. Indeed, having an editor look at your story could mean the difference between publishing a flop and a bestseller.

That’s why It's important to find a developmental editor in Boston who understands your creativity and personal voice to create an influential piece of writing that can enhance your career. Join us at Reedsy for quotes and comparisons to find what suits your needs — no matter where you are or what you want your writing to become.
