Hire the best developmental editors in Boulder


It’s important to give some consideration to the “big picture” in your manuscript. That’s why you need a developmental editor to check for larger issues.


However, developmental issues are difficult to see for yourself. Is the plot sound, do the character motivations feel real? In nonfiction, have you addressed everything you wanted, and laid it out clearly? You’re so deep into the story when you finish the draft that it’s often difficult to step back and look at it with fresh eyes.


Developmental editors are trained professionals who have spent years studying book structure. They can easily spot problems that may be elusive to your eyes. At Reedsy, we’ve gathered the best developmental editors in Boulder all in one place. Each of our professionals has been vetted to back sure they have the background and skills to provide the best service. Sign up to Reedsy and request quotes today, all for free.
