Who reviews manuscripts, and can they be contacted?

We’ve maintained a position of privacy and confidentiality for the Writer’s Edge reviewers out of consideration that follow-up contacts from sensitive or aggressive writers might not be welcome. In an age of Facebook, LinkedIn and dozens of other online sources that our professional editors participate in, it would be easy to contact them. But they are busy people who write and edit for a living and give time to the Writer’s Edge service for a significantly reduced rate over what they normally receive. All Writer’s Edge reviewers are highly experienced in the genre they are asked to evaluate. Most have worked for the publishing houses that make up the Writer’s Edge cooperating list. Some are published writers. Some are freelance editors who edit books under contract with major publishers, and some have been acquisition editors at major Christian publishing houses. All have extensive experience in evaluating manuscripts.
