Copy editors for hire in Brisbane

You’ve worked so hard writing and doing “big picture” edits on your book, but who’s going to spot all the little problems? You know — the times you accidentally changed tenses, or made a character clean-shaven in one scene, but gave him a full beard in the next. It’s an easy enough mistake to make, especially when you’re in the depth of revisions. Art gets messy, after all, and we don’t always think to clean up after ourselves.

Luckily, there are copy editors ready to sweep in and pick up the pieces. A great copy editor is worth their weight in gold — because the truth is, those so-called “small” mistakes are a big problem if they make it into the finished book. That’s why here at Reedsy, we’ve collected the best copy editors for hire in Brisbane and beyond. Our editors have worked with big publishing houses and bestselling indie authors alike, and now they’re ready to take their skills to your book. Thousands of authors have already met their editors through us, so why not sign up for free and meet them today?
