Freelance Editors

Updated 1/30/17.

Sometimes it’s necessary or desirable to work with a freelance editor to improve your writing skills or help make your manuscript more marketable. I’ve compiled a list of editors I know who are very good at what they do. There is a link to each individual website, so that you can see what services they offer and what they charge.

*Please note our agency is NOT connected financially or any other way with these editors. These are simply recommendations based on our knowledge of their previous work.
