Hire the best proofreaders in Canada


If you’re serious about self-publishing, you’ll want to make sure that your readers are reading the best possible version of your book. And that’s often not possible without a very important stage of the editing process: the proofread.


Proofreading, which generally follows the developmental edit and the copy edit, is the final step before a book goes to publication. Traditional publishing houses hire proofreaders to catch the last tiny errors in a manuscript, from a typo here to a punctuation mistake there. Even the best and most experienced authors will slip up, and the proofreader is there to act as the book’s safety net.


Since such a proofread ensures that the manuscript meets the level of professionalism that’s required in the book publishing industry, it mustn’t be overlooked. It also demands a certain set of unique qualities. Proofreaders must have a number of skills: years of experience, a deep knowledge of all of the different style sheets in the industry, and a pair of eagle-eyes to spot the blunders that have evaded notice thus far.


If you’re searching for a proofreader to ensure that your book is faultless before you publish it, search no further. The best proofreaders in the industry are on Reedsy. Only the top 3% of proofreaders in the industry are accepted on our marketplace, so you can rest assured that you’re collaborating with the best proofreaders for hire in Canada.
