Hire the best copy editors in Atlanta


Copy editing is one of the most essential services in the publishing business. It's difficult to judge your own work — you wrote it, after all, so you'll have a pretty good idea of what each and every sentence is meant to say. That's why you need a copy editor to use their professional expertise to ensure that every reader will be able to understand your work just as well.


A copy editor rework as needed to make sure your text flows perfectly; they’ll suggest stronger phrasing and point out overused words; and they’ll catch descriptive inconsistencies, so you never have to worry about that one side character suddenly changing eye color, or an item changing shape from page-to-page. A great copy editor will often write down why they're suggesting edits, too, so that you'll know what to look out for in your future edits — whether that's comma placement or smoothing out awkward phrases.


At Reedsy, we make it easier than ever before to connect with the freelancers in the industry. Our professional copy editors in Atlanta are thoroughly vetted by our team, so they have years of experience in publishing for large presses and self-publishing.
