Hire the best book editors in Seattle, Washington


Writing a book is an intensely personal kind of project, which makes many writers reluctant to share their manuscripts with friends, beta readers, or book editors — but there’s no reason to be shy. Across the industry, both traditionally published and indie authors typically work with a professional editor, whose experience allows them to see all the merits and flaws of their clients’ manuscripts.


From big-picture concepts like structure and character to more surface-level issues like copy editing grammar or proofreading punctuation, editing is an integral part of the process regardless of whether you’re writing fiction or nonfiction.


Reedsy’s book editors in Seattle and beyond come from a range of backgrounds: some hold MFAs or Master’s degrees in writing, others draw from their ghostwriting experience, others rely simply on a long career of acquired experience and skills. We only admit the top 5% of applicants to the Reedsy community, so we’ve got hundreds of vetted editors experienced in a large number of genres that you could get in touch with to discuss your project.


Sign up to Reedsy today to get in touch with our book editors in Seattle and request quotes for the editorial services you need.
