Hire the best copy editors in Austin, Texas


Once you’ve got a completed story on your hands, it’s only natural to want to make it as perfect as possible. After all — you’ve already poured so much blood, sweat, and tears into writing it. Now you simply need to hone this rough gem into a diamond for the entire world to see and read.


However, you won’t be able to do this without the services of a copy editor. While a developmental editor looks at the “big picture” of a book — the overarching elements such as plot, character, and theme, among others — a copy editor will make sure that your book is flawless on a sentence level. They'll watch out for awkward prose, fix any instances of vague wording, and point out story inconsistencies. In other words, they'll help improve all of the things that will make your book shine and vastly improve your future customer’s reading experience.


Of course, the best copy editors will have eagle eyes and plenty of experience under their belts. But they also ideally should have a deep understanding of your specific genre in order to edit your book to the best of their ability. That’s where Reedsy comes into the picture. Here on Reedsy, hundreds of the best copy editors for hire in Austin and around the world are accessible with only a click of the finger. We vet our publishing professionals rigorously, accepting only 3% of all applicants. Come meet all of the copy editors in Austin for yourself by signing up for a free account on Reedsy today.
