Crafting beautiful books is at the heart of everything that Reedsy does. We're changing the way books are published by giving authors and publishers access to talented professionals, powerful tools, and free educational content. Reedsy was founded in the summer of 2014 by Emmanuel Nataf, Ricardo Fayet, Vincent Durand and Matt Cobb. Since then, we've proudly built a community of over 1 million authors and 3,700 freelance professionals — helping them bring more than 15,000 books to market each year.

Quality, creativity and diversity

Publishers and authors trust us to provide them with quality talent. That’s why we only work with editors, designers, marketers, and ghostwriters who have experience crafting books that land on the New York Times bestseller list. Authors come to us from a range of backgrounds. Maintaining a diverse roster of professionals ensures that authors from all walks of life can find the right people to help. This is our challenge: to allow you to exercise your creativity by making sure our services are perfectly suited to your genre and budget. That’s why you will find that Reedsy professionals come from all across the globe: based in over 30 countries, they have worked with clients of all sizes and sensibilities. Our idea is simple: the more perspectives we can bring to the table, the more unique the books produced on Reedsy will be. We believe that in a world otherwise dominated by a mass-market culture, the need for a diversity of books is greater than ever. To see examples of books created on Reedsy, read our Author Stories.

A full ecosystem for authors and publishing professionals

As you immerse yourself into our ecosystem, you will discover that Reedsy can help at every stage of your publishing journey. Whether you start writing with our writing app, or polish your prose with assistance from the marketplace, we can provide the support you need to publish your story. For all writers, our blog offers insights into publishing and the writing craft. If you prefer video, you can watch a different publishing professional answer your questions via our Reedsy Live events, which we present every two weeks. And our Reedsy Learning courses are here to help any author through the learning curves in the publishing industry. We provide all these tools for free so that authors can learn and then concentrate on what they do best: writing.

We live the way our community lives

Reedsy is made possible thanks to the incredible professionals who have joined our network. They work from over 600 cities, covering most continents. We are strong believers in the power of remote work. The Reedsy team itself hails from over ten different countries and speaks as many languages. We’re entrepreneurs, designers, writers, hackers, bikers, engineers, runners, developers, soccer analysts, musicians, photographers, readers, travelers, gardeners, knitters, hikers, campers, and hard workers. And we’re here to help you.

We’re doing this because we care

We’re not just building Reedsy to make money and for the occasional feature in a renowned publication. It’s important for us to give back, and in 2017 we created the campaign #IWriteBecause, for which writers submitted inspirational one-minute videos. As part of the campaign, which reached over 6.7 million people, we donated to Room to Read – a non-profit seeking to improve child literacy and girls’ education in low-income communities across Asia and Africa.

In 2021, we teamed up with Room to Read once more for the Read for Charity challenge on Discovery. Over the course of one month, our community published over 500 book reviews and we raised nearly $3,000 for Room to Read’s programs.

In 2022, Reedsy sponsored TechBikers, a cycling event for startup entrepreneurs and investors to raise funds for Room to Read. The event successfully raised £70,000 and allowed Room to Read to expand into two new school communities, as well as the opening of libraries, and the training of grade 1 and 2 educators to teach reading and writing skills.
