Editors for hire in Cambridge

Hallelujah! You’ve dotted all of your i’s, crossed your t’s, and written — with a flourish — “The End” at the end of your manuscript. That’s the writing phase of the writing process all done and dusted. So what’s next?

We’ve got one word for you: editing. Before publication, every single book should go through several intensive rounds of editing — a developmental edit, a copy edit, and a proofread, in such a chronological order. The developmental edit is to fix the “big picture” problems in your book, whether that’s a shaky plot structure, unnecessary characters, or a crawling pace. Then the copy edit steps in to zoom in on issues such as awkward sentence structure, inconsistent descriptions of setting, and vague words. Finally, the proofread is there to ensure that there are absolutely zero typos in the final draft of your book — and that it’s finally ready be published.

Indeed, these edits might be the most important part of the writing process — which is why it’s so important to find the right editors for hire to perfect your manuscript. So where can you find an editor who’s the right fit for you? Right here on Reedsy. Our marketplace houses the best editors for hire in Cambridge and around the world. Having worked with the likes of Meg Wolitzer, Neil Gaiman, and George R.R. Martin, they’re now available to collaborate with you on your own story.
