Hire the best young adult copy editors


Young adult fiction is one of the most popular genres today, which means, while it’s not impossible, it’s a fight to get your work into readers’ hands. That’s why, after you’ve finished that first manuscript, you should consider investing in a YA copy editor. After all, it’s an author's worst nightmare to see avoidable typos or inconsistencies become the center of discussion around their work — instead of their story.


Hiring a young adult copy editor is promising yourself that that won’t happen, because they’ll spot errors long before they hit the press. If you’re on the hunt for one, you’re in the right place. Here on Reedsy, we’re host to the most talented professional editors in the industry, boasting years working in the publishing industry, and experience working with YA bestsellers like Suzanne Collins. They want to work with you next, are ready to take the next step? Join us for free today.
