Editors Australia

A book will never be considered a done deal unless it has been examined over and over again by editors whose job it is to check that it is free of errors. “But I’m confident with my work, why should I get their opinion?” you may ask. Confidence in your writing skills is certainly a good thing to have, but asking for an objective opinion from another person is also important. Remember that you aren’t just writing yourself, you’re also writing for readers. You won’t really do that very well if your book is rife with plot holes, inconsistent character descriptions, and tons of grammar and spelling mistakes.

If you want to ensure that your book is close to perfection, join Reedsy and get to know our superb editors in Australia, with whom you can collaborate. From developmental editors, copy editors, to proofreaders, we have an extensive list of professionals whose qualifications might just floor you. We only want the best for you, which is why we make sure that our editors in Australia are the best in the field. Where else can you find award-winning editors with previous experience in the Big 5?
