Developmental Editors in Boulder

Before you worry about whether you’ve missed a comma or begin sweeping your book for every last typo, you’re going to first want to give some consideration to the “big picture” of your work. Is the plot sound, do the character motivations feel real? In nonfiction, have you addressed all the points you wanted to discuss, and laid them out in a way that readers can follow your train of thought?
But sometimes it’s hard to see this kind of thing for yourself — you’re so deep into the work by the time you finish the draft that it’s difficult to step back and look at it the way a new reader would. Which is where a developmental editor comes in!

Developmental editors are trained professionals who have spent years studying the structure of books. As such, they can easily spot the problems that may be elusive to your eyes. And here at Reedsy, we’ve gathered the best developmental editors in Boulder all in one place.
