Developmental Editor Cleveland

Experienced authors will know that editors are essential to the process of publishing a book, and a developmental editor is perhaps most important of all. The role of a developmental editor is distinct because of its in-depth focus on the structure, plot, and characters of a story. However, their editing work also encompasses tone and consistency of prose! Their editors can transform a “just so-so” book into a title-of-the-year novel.

We know that you’re looking for the most skilled developmental editors in Cleveland, and we don’t disappoint. Our editors understand the importance of their work, recognizing that no matter how great an idea is, it still needs proper execution and substantive integrity to materialize into a successful outcome. Their main objective is to help create a manuscript worth diving into, and whatever stage your novel is at, they can help in a major way.

Our developmental editors are here to make your work entrance readers. So what are you waiting for? Sign up to Reedsy now and change your book (and your life) forever!
