Hire the best book editors in Sydney



We’ve worked with enough authors to know that first drafts are not at all representative of what the final version of the book will look like. In working to bridge the gap between these two versions of the book, partnering with a professional book editor is crucial. Completely fresh to the manuscript at hand and experienced in spotting structural or linguistic problems, our book editors in Sydney and beyond can help you overcome your familiarity with the text and see its flaws more clearly.


Whether you’re looking for a surface-level copy edit or a deeper developmental edit examining plot progression, character arcs, and themes, you’ll find an experienced editor for hire on Reedsy’s platform. Our book editors in Sydney have worked with Australian as well as international publishers, bestselling authors, and acclaimed independent authors. Simply sign up to our marketplace today to browse our editors’ profiles and discuss your book with them.
