Answer these questions before hiring an editor


Ideally, before you hire an editor, you should know the answers to three questions:

1. When should I hire one?

2. Why am I hiring one?

3. How do I find the right one?

Writer’s Digest asked three professional editors how to answer these questions for yourself — see what they said here.

And PS: They suggest you resolve these questions well before your manuscript is ready, so you can book the perfect proofreader several months before you actually need him or her.
