Writers Forum President Laura Hernandez wanted to pass along a great editing resource she has mentioned in Queen’s Letters. This is from an e-mail Laura received from Reedsy.
Writing isn’t a solo sport. To help your books and stories reach their fullest potential, you may eventually depend on your most trusted teammates: your editors. On the Reedsy blog, we’re revealing how editors can bring out the best in a writer’s work.
The topics we cover in this guide include:
- The five major types of editing;
- How to find a professional editor;
- The average costs of editing; and
- Tips for a fruitful editorial collaboration.
If you’d like us to introduce you to editors who can help you and your book, reply to this email with some information about your project — our team would be more than happy to make some personalized suggestions.
Martin, Blog Editor @ Reedsy
