Copy editor Boston

Looking for someone to improve your book on a line-by-line basis? If you’re concerned about misspellings, grammatical errors, and sentence structure, you’ll most likely require a copy editor — but even if not, you should still get one, just to be safe!

Those who have never worked with a copy editor before might think, “My book’s text looks good already. Why would I need an editor?” But you’d be amazed how the nuanced suggestions of a copy editor can take your book from good to great. It’s not just about catching typos and adding commas here and there; copy editing can elevate even the roughest text to utterly polished professionalism. Once you’ve gotten a copy edit, your book is much more equipped to compete with other titles on the market, both independently and traditionally published.

That’s why you shouldn’t wait a moment to begin your search for the right person! And if you’re looking for a copy editor in Boston, you’ve come to the right place. Reedsy has all the best editing professionals in the business, organized by city so you can find one who works for you.
