Hire the best science fiction developmental editors


Does your science fiction story’s success hinge on the appeal of its innovative technology, or immersive futuristic world? Are you wondering if there’s any glaring errors in your story’s logic, or missing key scenes?


Science fiction developmental editors are used to dealing with these kinds of questions. They’ve not only read widely in the genre (which means they know what’s happening in the market and how your book compares), but they’ve also actively contributed in the crafting of some fantasy bestsellers, and they know the process of manuscript revision like the back of their hand.


Reedsy’s science fiction developmental editors will be able to guide you towards a more streamlined, engaging, and overall successful sci-fi story — why not sign up today to browse their profiles?
