Book Editors New York

Have a book in need of a professional edit? Book Editors in New York are a dime a dozen, but this can make it tough to find the right professional for your own book. After all, having a wide array of options in one place doesn’t necessarily improve your chances. You need to know not just where to look, but what to look for in an editor.

For example, besides a keen eye and skillful hand, you’ll need someone with plenty of experience in your niche and a quote that matches your budget. You might require a developmental editor, who will perform an extensive, story-based edit of your book, or maybe you need a copy editor or final proofreader to ensure every word appears as it should. If all of the above, you’ll likely have to hire multiple editors — and if you’re not sure what your book requires, an editorial assessment is probably the way to go.

Luckily, the very best editors in New York are on Reedsy, so you don’t have to sort through the masses. We vet and accept only the top 3% of publishing talent in the industry to maximize your chances of matching with the right professional. You can browse through each editor’s past work experience and connect with them for free if you’ve got more questions. Sign up today to come meet them!
