Finding the right freelance editor for your project can be daunting, especially if you don’t know what questions to ask. So when Kristen Kieffer of Well-Storied asked if I’d like to write a guest post for her blog, I knew exactly what I wanted to create: a comprehensive yet concise guide for writers who are preparing to take that big step. And this is the result!

So what factors should writers consider when making this important decision? What is a sample edit, and how is it helpful to both you and the editor? And why should you pay close attention to the way an editor communicates with you? Find out the answers when you read “How to Choose the Right Freelance Editor for Your Manuscript.”

By the way, if you’re a fan of Well-Storied and Kristen’s work, make sure you check out her upcoming book Build Your Best Writing Life! It was an absolute pleasure to be her editor for this uplifting and inspiring project, and I can’t wait to see the final product soon.

What other factors should writers consider when choosing a freelance editor for their manuscript? If you’re working with a freelance editor on your project, how did you end up choosing them? Feel free to share your comments below.

  1. I didn’t see a comment section on Kristen’s blog.

    Anyway, I hadn’t thought much about the interaction with a potential editor. After reading Factor #5, I decided to copy the questions you listed. With my limited budget, I want to make sure I’m paying for an editor I feel confident with.
