Where to find an editor, copyeditor, or proofreader

I provide editing services, so you’ve found one editor* already! However, I may be already booked or lack experience in your genre or for some reason give you the heebie-jeebies.

Please don’t feel obligated to hire the first editor you contact. Good editing is an investment. It’s much better to take a little time nailing down what services you want or need and what your budget can afford, and then finding the right person to provide those services.

If you get a quote that’s outside your budget, ask the editor if there are ways to reduce the fee. Sometimes an editor will do only one pass over a manuscript instead of two or more, or will have other suggestions depending on the specific manuscript.

Here are some U.S.-centric resources:

U.K. editors can be found here:

Canadian editors (French and English):

Australian editors:

*I’m using editor here to refer to anyone who offers editorial services: developmental editing, copyediting, proofreading.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add
    to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading
    your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
