Hire the best proofreaders in Atlanta


You’ve carefully drafted your manuscript, revised it, gotten editors’ feedback, and revised some more. Now it’s as polished as can be — which means you’re finally ready to publish it, right?


Almost, but not quite. The final step in the polishing process still needs to be carried out: a proofread, one that will weed out any little mistakes that previous edits might have missed. Of course, if you’re already long finished with various rounds of editing, you might be skeptical that a proofreader could find anything else to correct. But for all you know, your latest revisions might have introduced new typos that previous edits can’t account. It’s also worth noting that if you’ve had a single editor pore over your manuscript multiple times, they’ve probably done a thorough job, but their eyes have inevitably become acclimated to the text — so a fresh pair of eyes is always good.


That's why, when hiring a proofreader, you should always look for someone who’s not seen your manuscript before. Fortunately, if you’re in search of proofreaders for hire in Atlanta, you’ve come to the right place. Here at Reedsy, we've curated a community of the best proofreading professionals in Atlanta who can make sure your book is typo-free before going to the press. And isn’t that the reassurance that every author deserves? So to find the perfect proofreader in Atlanta to put your mind at ease, sign up to Reedsy today to start requesting quotes for free.
