Hire the best proofreaders in the UK


If you’ve got the manuscript, we’ve got the proofreaders who can whip it into shape for you. In order to stand up (and stand out) next to traditionally published books, your story will need to be free of mistakes. And that includes the minuscule details that may have evaded your detection, such as typos, punctuation errors, and grammar slip-ups — all of which unfortunately makes or breaks the professionalism of your book in readers’ eyes.


Luckily, proofreaders exist for this reason. A proofread is the final edit before publication, and it guarantees that all of the tiny mistakes that might remain in a book’s text are eliminated. You can think of it as a safety net: any error that might have bypassed your notice earlier will be caught during a thorough and professional proofread.


Professional proofreaders are employed by traditional publishing houses and self-publishing authors alike. Quality proofreaders should ideally bring a host of abilities to the table of a collaboration, including patience, decades of experience, and a meticulous eye for detail. So if your intention is to publish a book that is the best that it can be, you’ll want to find the best proofreader for hire in the UK.


Here’s the good news: you’re one step ahead of the game, because you’re already in the right spot. Reedsy is home to the best professional proofreaders in the business. Our publishing professionals have experience editing at Big 5 publishers under their belt and have frequently worked on bestselling books. And now’s your chance to work with them. Simply sign up for a free Reedsy account today to get a free quote from a professional proofreader.
