Hire the best children's book copy editors


Just because your readers are young doesn’t mean they won’t notice errors in your manuscript. In fact, error-free writing is even more important when presented to children, as it also serves an educational purpose. Aside from educational reasons though, presenting a polished manuscript to your readers also directly impacts the impression your book makes on readers, parents, and booksellers — all of whom would agree that a manuscript with errors and inconsistencies is unlikely to find itself on the top of the bestselling charts.


So where can you hire a children’s book copy editor? You’ve come to the right place. Here at Reedsy, we carefully vet the CVs and experience of each applicant hoping to be listed on our marketplace. The ones who make it are guaranteed to be the best, and most importantly, if they’re listed in your genre, we’ve verified their qualifications for offering copy editing services to children’s authors.
