Hire the best book editors in Edinburgh



Before your book can be published, you’ll need to spend time refining and polishing it. This typically takes the form of several rounds of revisions, which can include anything from big-picture changes affecting structure or characterization to shifts in tone and style on the sentence level.



It’s a process best undertaken with the help of a professional editor. Depending on the type of editing you need, you can hire a book editor in Edinburgh (or beyond!) for an editorial assessment, developmental edit, copy edit or proofread — and if you aren’t sure what you need, just ask an editor, they’ll be able to help.



On Reedsy’s platform, you can hire book editors in Edinburgh who have worked with big 5 publishers and bestselling authors like George R. R. Martin and Neil Gaiman. Our editors hail from all parts of Scotland, the UK, and the world. Simply look for editors with experience in your genre and get in touch with them to hear what they think of your project.
