Developmental Services

**1/29 Update: We are loving the projects we have in! A heads up that we only have 2 spots left through Q1**

If you are looking for a developmental edit to help you with your book proposal or manuscript (fiction or nonfiction, traditional or self-pub), Blue Heron Literary may be able to help!

We are open to all categories of non-fiction, and YA, commercial and literary fiction. We will not work on picture books, poetry, academic, or scientific writing. 

Please submit your work request in order to receive a quote. Email, and include ‘Development Request’ with the subject line.

Please Note:

  • We will not provide line editing, proofreading, or fact checking services

  • Not all proposals/manuscripts will be accepted, as we will not take on projects we cannot provide meaningful feedback for

  • Average turnaround time is one month, depending on the word/page count.  Your timeline will be provided upon acceptance.

  • Proposal development does not imply your work is represented by Blue Heron Literary
