Dan Varrette - Editor

Toronto, ON, Canada

Professional editor. I help authors and organizations develop effective and polished writing.

Overview

I am an editor with five years of in-house experience and more than ten years of experience in the book publishing industry.

Aspiring and established authors alike will benefit from my editorial services. Editing will help your work, whether you plan to approach traditional publishers or intend to self-publish. Regardless of which route you take, an editor can be an invaluable resource in getting your writing published.

Editing novels, poetry, and other forms of creative writing requires an attention to detail, as both the technical and artistic aspects of every work should achieve a fine balance. Each writer has a unique style and voice; an editor should take careful consideration to ensure it is developed fully.

Services are available for business-oriented writing as well as many other forms of non-fiction writing. I am trained in business and marketing communications and experienced in producing publicity content for the publishing industry. Editors do more than just fix grammar, punctuation, and spelling—they understand the nature of the message.
