Hire the best developmental editors in Calgary


Let’s face it: writing a book is a lot of work. When the first draft isn't quite right, and neither is the second, or third or fourth draft it feels like it could go on forever. It’s understandable if you need an outside set of eyes after a while. After all, we’re only human, and keeping track of which details have changed or what plot threads you’ve removed or shifted can be a monumental task.


Luckily, you don’t need to go at it alone. And while helpful friends may want to give your book a read for you, there really is no substitute for the trained eye of a seasoned professional. By hiring a developmental editor in Calgary, you’re taking the first step toward making your book the best possible version of itself.


A developmental editor will spot everything from large-scale structural problems, to plot holes, to inconsistent tenses, and more. If you’ve ever struggled with characterization, or the sagging middle act, or building up to a climax that truly delivers, a developmental editor can help. And at Reedsy, we only accept the best of the business — our editors have worked with the biggest publishing houses, helping bestselling authors realize their creative vision.
