Copy editors for hire in Canada

Got a book that feels rather as though it’s a diamond in the rough? Don’t worry — there’s a solution, and it’s called a professional edit.

Before you commit to a collaboration with an editor, make sure that you know exactly what kind of edit your manuscript requires. If you’re uncertain about a lot of your story’s “big picture” elements (such as theme, pacing, and characterization), for instance, you’re likely in need of a developmental edit. However, if you’re confident about the structure and content of your story and you’d like a professional to fine-tune it to perfection, you’re probably going to want to look at getting a copy edit.

A copy editor will make sure that your story meets the professional standards of the demanding book industry. If you work with a copy editor for hire in Canada, your copy editor will catch all of the typos, punctuation mistakes, and grammar errors that might have slipped through the net. Factual inconsistencies are also fair game — whether that’s an incorrect date or a conflicting description of character appearance.

It’s important that you find a copy editor who has plenty of experience in the industry and understands the nuances of your particular niche. If this is what’s holding you back, look no further! The best copy editors for hire in Canada are on Reedsy. Our copy editors go through a rigorous vetting process, and we only accept the top 3% of talent in the industry. Simply browse through their portfolios to get a thorough look at their past experience and projects.
