What is Reedsy?

Reedsy is a marketplace that connects authors with the publishing world’s best freelancers to help them create awesome books. With a community of over 500,000 indie authors and professionals, Reedsy has become the place to find the right editors, designers, marketers, publicists, and web developers to make your book a success.

On the marketplace, clients can browse through our freelancers’ profiles and request a no-obligation quote for their project. From their side of the platform, our freelancers can respond to requests, collaborate with authors, and manage payments all in one place.

I just need advice to write/publish my book. Can you help?

Absolutely. For that, we have Reedsy Learning, a series of free online courses that provides insights into the writing, publishing, and book marketing processes. These courses are taught by some of the top professionals in the industry, as well as with publishing companies we have partnered with.

Each course includes 10 bite-size, five-minute lessons that will be delivered straight to your inbox one by one over the course of 10 days. And did we mention they’re free? You can sign up to multiple courses at any given moment, but we recommend taking them one at a time to better take the material in! 🤓
