Proofreader in Boston

Are you an author looking for someone to improve your book by reading it line-for-line? If so, then you’re probably concerned about misspelled words, grammar errors, and mistakes in sentence structure — and you almost definitely need a professional proofreader for that.

If you haven’t worked with a proofreader before you might be thinking, “I used spellcheck. I’m a good speller. Why do I need a proofreader?” Yet you’d be surprised at how many great suggestions a proofreader can make to help totally perfect your book. Proofreaders don’t only catch typos and add an occasional comma: proofreading takes your unfinished text and makes it professional and polished. After a round of proofreading, your book becomes more competitive against other books on the independent and traditional publishing markets.

For these reasons, you shouldn’t wait any longer to start searching for the right proofreader. And if you’re looking for a proofreader in Boston, you found the right spot. Reedsy works with top proofreaders in the publishing industry, sorted by city for you to more easily find the right one for you.
