When you need an editor -- hire a journalist. The reason? Journalists know how to edit, but they also know how to write. They recognize and respect good writing, and they know the secret to good editing: Never change anything in someone else's copy just because YOU would have written it differently.
Hire a journalist as your editor and you will get a professional who provides you with the highest standard of editing while preserving your unique voice to engage your readers.
