Developmental Editor Fort Worth

The editing phase of a book doesn’t always begin only after the first draft of the manuscript is finished. Oftentimes, an author will seek the advice of a developmental editor if they think their book is losing focus. A development editor is responsible for assuring that the plot stays consistent with the intended structure, and all the small details align throughout. These editors can also help authors realign their writing style to best speak to their intended target audience. Since a developmental editor’s advice may mean reworking your manuscript, it’s best to team up with someone whom you are comfortable receiving criticism from.

Excellent developmental editors in Fort Worth seem hard to come by, but not if you’re looking in the right places. Join Reedsy, and you’ll have the opportunity to work with remarkable editors who have contributed to the success of books from the leading names in the publishing industry.
