Hire the best education and reference copy editors


If there’s one genre where poor writing is completely unacceptable, it has to be education and reference books. Designed to instruct and educate, they’re sure to let people down if found to contain linguistic inconsistencies, wordy or vague explanations of important concepts, or spelling mistakes. It makes sense, right?


The good news is that hiring an education or reference book copy editor is very simple, because you’ve landed on our marketplace. Here at Reedsy, we accept fewer than 5% of the professionals who apply to offer their services on our marketplace, so you can trust that the ones who’ve made it are suitably qualified and experienced in your genre, having worked with some of the biggest publishers in the field.


To make sure you don’t end up with an error-ridden education or reference manuscript, sign up to Reedsy today and browse some copy editor profiles — or request quotes tailored to your project’s specifics for free.
