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.


But where can you go to find the dream developmental editor for hire in Canada for your story? Meet the elite force of editors on Reedsy. Our rigorous vetting process guarantees quality, so that the caliber of the publishing professionals that you’ll meet on our marketplace is unparalleled. Many of our developmental editors have worked on bestsellers, including The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones — and you can browse each editor’s thorough profile to see their past work experience for yourself.
