Literary Lingo

It’s time for some Literary Lingo.

Today’s word is: Developmental Editor

Person who deals with the overall organization of a book’s manuscript rather than with changes such as wording of sentences within paragraphs. A developmental editor also addresses reordering entire blocks of text and such an edit may extend to reordering entire chapters. The edit may also address tone, voice, addition or deletion of material, complexity of material and transitions among paragraphs and sections of the book. Compare to Book Doctor.
