Book Editor Birmingham

The first stage in the editing process is figuring out what you’ll need to fix — and for that, there’s nothing better than an editorial assessment. An editorial assessment looks at your whole book, and breaks down exactly where your problem points might be. Does the plot make sense? Is your structure clear and follows a logical progression? Do you have engaging characters? Is the language smooth and polished, or riddled with grammatical errors?

But not just anyone is qualified to evaluate your manuscript. For the more useful results, you’re going to want to hire a great editor, and that’s where we come in! Reedsy makes it easy to search all the editors in Birmingham and beyond, connecting you straight to the best in the business.
