Hire the best book editors in Melbourne



No matter the skill level of its writer, no manuscript is flawless as a first draft. Several rounds of revisions are needed to iron out big-picture issues and minor linguistic errors alike, chiseling the book toward its final form. In this process, hiring a book editor is the best thing you can do for your book, as professional editors bring with them years of experience in the publishing industry, and can spot not just what’s wrong on the page, but also what might be missing that would help you enter a dialogue with other works in your genre.


Our book editors in Melbourne can help you with a number of editorial services, from editorial assessments to developmental and copy editing. Simply sign up to Reedsy’s marketplace today to discuss your manuscript with one of our editors for hire.
