Copy editor in Calgary

Have you managed to get your dream book down on paper at last, but the prose still gives you pause? Do you feel incredibly confident in the story you’re telling, but less so in your spelling and grammar? Or do you simply want someone to look through your manuscript and make every sentence shimmer on the page?

If you answered “yes” to any or all of the above questions, you’re in the market for a copy editor — someone who will comb through your text and fix the mistakes, but also make more nuanced suggestions about your prose. Indeed, the modern copy editor is anything but a typo catcher. Copy editing involves plenty of mechanical work, yes, but it also has much to do with semantics: ensuring that your sentences convey exactly what you mean, and always in a highly effective manner. Finding a good copy editor means finding a trusted collaborator who will gently shape your prose and push it in the direction that you intend, all the while working in tandem with your feedback and personal style.

But where can you find an experienced copy editor in Calgary, someone who will work for your project and budget? Look no further — we have all the best editors here on Reedsy, many of whom came to us from publishers like Hachette and HarperCollins! All you have to do is sign up, and you can view their work, request quotes, and even hire a copy editor in Calgary today.
