Hire the best developmental editors in Columbus


Once you’re done with your manuscript, you may be looking into ways to refine your content. If you think your structure or overall narrative needs a professional overview, you may require the services of a developmental editor.


A good developmental editor will work with you to ensure your manuscript has direction and can carry through to the end. They will look at its structure to make sure that your content flows from beginning to the end, chapter by chapter. Your developmental editor will then guide you through the editing process by creating a plan of big-picture ways you can strengthen your manuscript, and how to put them into action.


Developmental editing is a special skill, and a fairly collaborative process as well. It is therefore vital that you hire a qualified and experienced professional whose working style complements your own — and you will find the best at Reedsy. Sign up today and hire one of our developmental editors in Columbus.
