Hire the best developmental editors in Minneapolis, Minnesota


A draft will remain a draft, unless it has been thoroughly reviewed and revised before reaching publication. But just because you did the writing, that doesn't mean you need to assign yourself the editing. A fresh set of eyes is an important part of the writing process, because the right outsider can give precise and objective feedback of your work — namely, a developmental editor. Some writers present their work to these editors after finishing the whole manuscript, while others seek their guidance from start to finish.


If you are on board with having a partner to rely on in your writing process, then join Reedsy and get to know our developmental editors in Minneapolis. Our editors have worked with great writers such as Candy Calvert and Tim Murphy. With their expertise in the field, they can help you develop your manuscript as you write, or refine an existing draft. You can view profiles of developmental editors in Minneapolis and decide which one you’d like to collaborate with. Create a Reedsy account today, for free, and start browsing our editors’ profiles.
