Hire the best book editors in London


There are several types of editing, including developmental, copy editing, and proofreading. Ideally, your book will receive each of these types — but which one it needs most will depend entirely on the state of your book.


That's why it’s a good idea to consider working with a professional editor, and Reedsy is an excellent place to find the right one for you. When you sign up for a Reedsy account, you can browse through the profiles of hundreds of editors for hire in London, some of whom have worked with bestselling authors like Stephen King and Neil Gaiman. We vet and accept only the top 5% of London editors on our marketplace. You can request free quotes from up to five editors. Make sure to specify what type of editing you’re looking for — or to mention if you’re not actually sure what level of editing you need. Our freelance professionals will be happy to assess what type of editing would most benefit your book where it's at.


It’s incredibly difficult for an author to be entirely objective about their own book’s strengths and weaknesses. If you want to publish your book at it’s best and are searching for an editor for hire in London, look no further than Reedsy.
