Kirkus Launches Editing Division For Self-Published Authors

Kirkus has launched a new book editing division. The new service will provide editing, copyediting, proofreading and copywriting services for unpublished and self-published authors.

The book editing division follows the success of Kirkus Indie, the company’s review program for self-publishers. Meg Kuehn, COO of Kirkus explained in the release: “Offering book editing services is a natural extension of our brand. We’ve been notorious for our high editorial standards for decades, and our success working with independent authors in the Kirkus Indie program paved the way for new author services that serve this fast-growing segment of the industry.”

Editors looking to participate in the Kirkus program must have experience working at a big six publisher or at an “award-winning” independent press such as Graywolf, Kensington or Abrams.

UPDATE: Kirkus Reviews noted on Twitter: “Please note: KIRKUS INDIE & KIRKUS EDITORIAL are completely separate services, different staff, different ordering process.”
