Hire the best book editors in Cambridge


You’ve dotted all of your i’s, and crossed your t’s: the writing phase is 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 that 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 wording. 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 in Cmabridge 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.
