We’re looking for a plot development editor to work with us on our draft paranormal cozy mystery plots, the first step in what will eventually become a great cozy mystery series.
This job has two stages:
- Making an assessment of our draft plots, telling us what you believe works and doesn’t work, and applying a crucial critical eye. You will suggest amendments, suggest sub-plots or thematic additions, look out for plot holes and inconsistencies within the story, and work to improve the plot all-round.
- Secondly, we’ll be asking you to flesh out our draft plot, expanding upon it in greater detail, adding flourish, and bringing it up to a standard that is easily understood, and very easy to write from. The finished product will include character descriptions, and be around 3000-5000 words.
You must understand the cozy mystery genre very well, and be well-read on what makes a narrative story work. You should know all the common themes and tropes in cozy mystery, and be a general fan of the genre.
Additionally, you should be of a creative mindset, and be a keen problem-solver, with regard to what works within fiction.
