Editors Atlanta

No matter what stage you’re at with your current manuscript, odds are you could use an editor or two to help you out. Maybe your structure’s a bit shaky or your plot just seems to be missing something — if that sounds like you, you’ll likely need a developmental editor to help with “big picture” problems. Or if you’re 100% confident in your story, but your prose needs a little work (whether it’s purely mechanical, like spelling and grammar issues, or more that you struggle to express ideas clearly), then a copy editor could be the answer to all your prayers. Sometimes you’ll need a line editor who assists with prose on a more detailed level, or a proofreader just to give your final manuscript a once-over and reassure you that there aren’t any typos.

Whatever type of editing you require, you’re sure to find a qualified editing professional on Reedsy. Our Atlanta editors have years of experience in every type of editing, and many offer multiple services as well — so if you need both a developmental and a copy edit for your book, you could find yourself a valuable long-term collaborator on our marketplace. As you’ll see from their profiles, some of our editors have even worked with Big 5 publishing houses to refine the biggest titles you’ll find on the shelves. So if you’re seeking editors for hire in Atlanta, don’t wait: sign up to Reedsy and you’ll be in touch with the best editors in the business within minutes.
