Hire the best developmental editors in Atlanta


Where can I find a developmental editor for hire in Atlanta?


Right here on Reedsy.


In a nutshell, a developmental editor is a professional who will help you zero in on the story that you’re actually trying to tell. Developmental editors will identify all of the weaknesses in the "big-picture" elements of your story (including the plot, characterization, structure, and theme) and work with you to fix all of them. All books that go through this important process come out leaner, sharper, and much better — which means that, for the next John Grishams and Flannery O'Connors out there, a strong developmental editor is a key to boosting you to bestseller status.


What should I look for in a developmental editor?


To become akin to Atlanta’s own Alan Ball (of American Beauty or Six Feet Under fame), you’ll need a developmental editor who is experienced in your genre and is honest while remaining constructive. It’s a dance of trust between the writer and the editor here. Luckily, by signing up here at Reedsy, you’ll gain exclusive access to vetted developmental editors who have worked in renowned publishing houses and educational institutions across the East Coast. Start today.
