Hire the best copy editors in Australia


Writing a book is tiring and time-consuming — but the editing process might just be harder, even for seasoned writers. If you're looking for someone local who can improve your book on a sentence level, you can now hire a copy editor in Australia through Reedsy.


A good copy editor is one of the important members of any writer’s team. They will turn a rough draft into a manuscript ready for print (or ebook, as it were). Apart from improving grammatical and punctuation errors, they improve clarity, tone, consistency, and sentence structure. Having a book full of errors affects your standing with your readers — as a result, a copy editor is a valuable investment in your professional credibility and success.


Finding the right individual can be difficult, however. That’s why we take our vetting process seriously at Reedsy, so our authors don’t have to spend even more time on this task. Join us today and let us connect you to the best copy editors in Australia.
