Hire the best developmental editors in Canada


Looking to take your manuscript to the next level? Whatever your story is, our developmental editors can turn it into a bestseller. That’s the power of developmental editing: a kind of edit that looks at the “big-picture” of your story. This might include complications with your story’s characterization, pacing, and structure. A developmental editor can help diagnose and fix such underlying problems, developing your story into the best version of itself that it can be.


A developmental editor should bring a perfect mix of qualities to the table, including a proven track record and a deep knowledge of the industry — not to mention the genre. Given the challenge of the task at hand, a developmental edit is generally a long, arduous process, but the improvements that you’ll see in your story afterward will make it worth it.
