Editing Companies & Services
ProWritingAid – So many resources for self-editing – to help you clean up before sending to a live editor
FirstEditing – Offering a multitude of services throughout all stages of editing
SpeakWritePlay – Offers all levels of editing AND translation services. We’ve heard nothing but rave reviews!
SfeP – I also recommend using the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (sfep) – https://www.sfep.org.uk/ . They have a wealth of information on their site, and a directory of over 700 proofreaders and editors. You may search by genre – for example, when I search fiction, I come up with almost 300 results. And you can see the books they have edited and the type of editing they prefer to determine if they are a good fit for what you’re writing.
