Hire the best proofreaders in Cambridge


So you’ve put your book through the paces and gotten it through a few rounds of editing from developmental editors and copy editors alike. You’re incredibly close to the finish line now — but before you finally and deservedly publish your book, it’s strongly advised to get a proofread.


As the last stage of the editing process, the proofread exists to ensure that your book is up to the professional standards that the industry — and your readers — will demand. Think of it as a safety net to catch all of the remaining grammatical oversteps and spelling mistakes that automatically separate the amateurs from the experts. For many books, it’s the proofread that will ward off any 1-star reviews complaining about the number of typos that the reader encountered while reading your story.


So where can you go looking for a professional proofreader with the right experience and keen eye to work on your book? Luckily, Reedsy houses the best proofreaders for hire in Cambridge. Most come from Big 5 publishers and have already worked with bestselling authors from Stephen King to Neil Gaiman before. Sign up for a free Reedsy account today to meet them.
