Copy Editors for hire in Atlanta

Copy editing is one of the most underestimated services in the publishing business. Even now, you might be thinking, “Why do I need a copy editor if I have spell check on my computer?”

But what copy editors do is far more nuanced than merely scanning your work for typos. Rather, they’ll rearrange and rework sentences so that the passages “flow” more easily; they’ll suggest stronger phrasing and point out overused words; they’ll catch small descriptive inconsistencies from scene to scene; and so much more. Most copy editors will even create style sheets as they work, so that if you want to give your book another pass — or hand it off to a proofreader — you’ll already have all the information you need to double-check the copy. And yes: on top of all this, a copy editor will also fix basic spelling and grammar mistakes that a machine-based spell checker may have missed.

Now you’re probably thinking, “Where can I find an experienced copy editor in Atlanta who will work for my book and my budget?” Right here on Reedsy is where. Our copy editors have years of experience “reading between the lines,” so to speak, and can suggest improvements to your manuscript that you’d never have considered otherwise. They’ll truly make your book into the best version of itself that it can be — so why wait? Start exploring the profiles of our best copy editors for hire in Atlanta today.
