Copy Editors in Brooklyn

You’ve taken your manuscript through a big picture review and you’re feeling confident about the overall structure and plot. However, you may not be the greatest speller or grammarian, which has led you to worry about mechanical errors pervading your book. Never fear! In your desperate search for copy editors in Brooklyn, you have come to the right spot.

Here at Reedsy, our professional copy editors will ensure that your book isn’t peppered with spelling errors, bad grammar, and/or blatant inconsistencies. Plus, a really great copy editor will do much more than that! They’ll examine your manuscript on a line-by-line basis and focus on all the small descriptive items you may have overlooked. (For example, they’ll catch scenes where one sentence claims your character is wearing sandals, but the next paragraph switches it to wingtips.) All this will save your manuscript from unintentional but still very noticeable inconsistencies in tone and detail, ensuring your book ends up as an integrated whole.

At Reedsy, we have all the top copy editors in the industry, so you can feel confident that you are receiving a high-quality proof of your treasured manuscript. Why not come and meet them today? Sign up to Reedsy and start connecting with the very best copy editors in Brooklyn.
