Developmental Editor Calgary

Let’s face it: writing a book is a lot of work From writing the first draft, and the second (or third or fourth) drafts, to editing the drafts… 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, and what plot threads you’ve removed or shifted, can be a monumental task.

Luckily, you don’t need to go 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.
