A professional edit of your work is priceless and could be the difference between publication and the slush pile.
Brian A Klems
Dear Fellow Writer,One of the most common mistakes we all make as writers is submitting our work to agents and publishers before it’s really ready. There’s value in self-editing, but there’s also a lot of risk relying on our eyes only. Having a professional editor read your manuscript and help rid it of typos, grammatical errors, weak plot devices and more is not only one of the most valuable investments you can make toward your writing career, it’s also what may make the difference between your book getting published and getting thrown in the slush pile.As a writer and author myself, I know the value of a professional editor firsthand and have seen with my own eyes what a big difference hiring one makes.Here at Writer’s Digest we’ve collected some amazing professional editors and now have them at your disposal with our 2nd Draft program. Writer’s Digest 2nd Draft allows you to tell us what you’re looking for and we find you an editor that fits your needs. Whether that’s a full manuscript edit, an edit of your short story, a query letter critique or more, our editors will help you weed out the weakest parts of your story and strengthen your writing.You no longer have to spend hours surfing the web looking for great editors-we have them for you here in one place.

Visit Writer’s Digest 2nd Draft Critique Services now and find the program that fits your needs. Make 2015 the year that you invest in your writing career and give your manuscript its best chance to find success!


Take care of yourself and your writing,
