Hire the best developmental editors in Charlotte


You might be wondering: "What exactly is a developmental edit and how does it differ from a proofread?" Think of the development edit as the very first pass at your manuscript. This is the stage of editing that will examine your "big picture" issues, such as pacing, plot holes, and weak character development. A skilled developmental editor will know how to take a rough diamond and make it shine as the story that it was meant to be.


That said, not all developmental editors are created the same. You'll want to find one who's worked in your genre before, so that they have the experience to back up their claims. At Reedsy, we have a carefully curated selection of developmental editors in Charlotte just like that to assist you with your needs. We accept only the top 3% of publishing professionals onto our marketplace in order to make it easier for you to matching with the right one.
