Editor New York

We’d all like to be able to sit down and craft the perfect book in one go, but unfortunately that’s not how writing works. To really create a book that sells, you’re going to need multiple drafts, plenty of cups of coffee, and the thorough feedback and critique that only a professional New York editor can bring.

From spotting structural flaws and working through plot holes with a developmental editor, to ironing out all the inconsistencies and wrinkles in your grammar with a copy editor, to the eagle-eyed typo-hunting capabilities of a proofreader, there really is no substitute for the quality an editor can bring. It’s what separates those at the kid’s table from the grow-ups, the hobbyists from the entrepreneurs, the slush-pile rejects from the published authors.
But where do you find one you can trust?

At Reedsy, we understand that you don’t want to do business with just anybody. Your book is an important investment, and the last thing you want to do is waste your money on someone claiming to be a professional who will turn in substandard work. That’s why we vet all our editors for you, accepting only the ones proven to deliver. Our professionals have worked with major publishing houses and bestselling self-publishers alike. So if you’re looking to hire an editor in New York, why not sign up for free and start browsing profiles today?
