Developmental Editor Minneapolis

A draft will remain a draft, unless it has been thoroughly reviewed and revised before it reaches publication. But don’t think for one second that because you did the writing, you also need to assign yourself the editing! A fresh set of eyes is an important part of the writing process because they can give precise and objective feedback of your work, which calls for a developmental editor. Some writers present their work to these editors after finishing the whole manuscript, while others seek their guidance from start to finish.

If you are on board with having a partner to rely on in your writing process, then join Reedsy and get to know our developmental editors in Minneapolis. Our editors have worked with great writers such as Candy Calvert and Tim Murphy. With their expertise in the field, they can help you develop your manuscript and even overcome that dreaded writer’s block.
