Hire the best developmental editors in Cleveland


Experienced authors know that an editor is essential to the process of publishing a book — and that a developmental editor is perhaps the most important of all. The role of the development edit is distinct because of its in-depth focus on the structure, plot, and characters of a story. However, the scope of a developmental editor's work can also encompass tone and consistency of prose, which means that their guidance is key to the success of your book. A great developmental editor can transform a “just so-so” book into a title-of-the-year novel.


We know that you’re looking for the most skilled developmental editors in Cleveland, which is why we invite you to visit our marketplace of publishing professionals at Reedsy. Our editors have years of experience working with bestselling authors and they understand the importance of their work, recognizing that no matter how great an idea is, it still needs proper execution and substantive integrity to materialize into a successful outcome.
