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.
