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.
