Hire the best proofreaders in London


You’ve removed all plot holes, tightened up your prose, gone through several rounds of revisions, and feel like your manuscript is just about ready to hit the presses. But before you do, there’s one crucial part of the editing process left: proofreading.


Whether you’ve already worked with a developmental or copy editor, or enlisted beta readers, friends, and family to look over your book, you must have someone read your manuscript with the singular goal of proofreading. This involves looking out for spelling, grammar, punctuation, and consistency errors. And trust us, when the Amazon review section of your book is free from comments like “This book is riddled with typos,” you’ll be relieved you didn’t skip the proofreading step.


The good news is that it’s easy to find a great proofreader for hire in London. In fact, our marketplace of 1,000+ professional proofreaders can be just what you need. We vet and only accept 3% of publishing talent in the industry to ensure that you get to collaborate with the best of the best — many of whom have experience polishing bestsellers for Big 5 publishers and authors like Stephen King and Neil Gaiman. Come meet the best proofreaders in London today.
