Why Your Book Needs Developmental Editors

& Sensitivity Readers With Yasmin Angoe

Have you ever wondered how a Developmental Editor can help you? What about a Sensitivity Reader? What exactly do they do?

Yasmin Angoe is the perfect person to answer all of your questions. As an English teacher, an editor, a sensitivity reader, and a debut author this year, she is perfectly poised to discuss all of these different aspects of writing. She has been on both sides of the publishing coin and can speak from experience about how to let go of "your baby" to allow others in to help make it ready to be published. Because that is the ultimate goal, right?

To learn more about what she does, check out Tessera Editorial, a consortium of freelance BIPOC editors, at https://www.tesseraeditorial.com and her author website, https://yasminangoe.com

Yasmin Angoe is the debut author of the bestselling and award-winning thriller Her Name Is Knight. She is a first-generation Ghanaian American and has worked in education for nearly twenty years as a middle and high school teacher and instructional coach. Currently, Yasmin works as a developmental editor and sensitivity reader for publishers and authors.

Yasmin received the 2020 Eleanor Taylor Bland Award for Emerging Writers of Color from Sisters in Crime of which she is a member. She is also a proud member of numerous crime, mystery, and thriller writing groups and organizations like Crime Writers of Color, Mystery Writers of America, and International Thriller Writers.

When she’s not writing, Yasmin’s editing for clients, searching what show or movie to binge, absorbed in an audiobook, or obsessing over the fact she should probably be writing at that very moment.

Yasmin is represented by Melissa Edwards at Stonesong Literary and Addison Duffy at United Talent Agency.
