Developmental Editor Indianapolis

Upon completing your manuscript, you’ll need to ensure that the structure and the content of your story are well developed — otherwise you’ll have no chance of making it in the competitive publishing world. A professional developmental editor can help you achieve this by taking a big-picture look at your manuscript and sorting out the major issues!

Though most authors come to them after writing a first draft, developmental editors can work with you at various stages. They can help you edit your finished manuscript, or they can work with you from conception to completion. They’ll evaluate your style and structure, constantly keeping you in check. Overall, they will look through your book to make sure you do not have any plot holes; that your characters are well-developed and three-dimensional; and that your work is organized in a way that flows naturally for readers.

Needless to say, this is not light work, and you will need to hire only the most qualified developmental editor to accomplish these tasks. On Reedsy, we’ve already vetted them for you — sign up today and hire the best developmental editor in Indianapolis!
