Editors for hire in Atlanta

Editing your own book can be tricky, especially if you’re not sure how much or what kind of editing you need. A thorough round of self-editing is never a bad idea, but what about all the problems you can’t see because you’re too close to your own work — or more complex issues that you simply don’t have the know-how to recognize?

If you’re concerned about one or both of these blind spots, you’re the perfect candidate for an editorial assessment: a thorough overview of your book completed by a professional editor. This editor will read your entire manuscript and recommend specific things to fix, so you know which other editors you’ll need to hire, or alternatively which areas to focus on in your next self-edit (narrative structure, character development, clarity of prose, etc.). The great thing about an editorial assessment is that it gives you a solid sense of your book’s strengths and weaknesses without having to shell out for a full developmental edit, which can cost twice as much or more.

And if you’re seeking an editor in Atlanta to perform such an editorial assessment, look no further than Reedsy! We have editors of every stripe right here on our marketplace, and hundreds of great editors available to complete a meticulous editorial assessment for you.
