Hire the best fantasy developmental editors


There are a lot of moving parts for authors to juggle in the fantasy genre. It’s a genre that requires rich and original imagination, and requires its writers to think carefully about setting, characterization, and wielding the two in parallel to craft an intriguing and satisfying narrative arc.


From identifying redundant scenes to spotting crucial transitions currently lacking, a fantasy developmental editor can help you deal your story’s big picture. Is the plot’s resolution plausible and persuasive? Have you left any loose threads? Does the beginning hook the reader in enough?


Hiring one of our fantasy developmental editors can help you answer all of these questions. The professionals on our marketplace have been carefully vetted, and have extensive experience working with Big 5 publishers and bestselling authors.
