Editor in Calgary

Writing a book is hard work. As an author, you have to pull fully formed characters, engaging storylines, and multi-layered themes right out of thin air. You have to make sure your prose is compelling, your pacing well-calibrated, and your spelling and grammar crisp. It’s a lot to ask of one person… which is why just about every successful author has a dream team of editors helping them out.

To be clear, hiring an editor (or two or ten) doesn’t mean giving up creative control over your book. If anything, it’s the opposite; a skillful editor will enhance your natural voice and the standout elements of your story, not hack it into unrecognizable pieces. From developmental editors to iron out the “big picture” parts like plot and structure, to copy editors and proofreaders who work on a line-by-line basis, these professionals are duty-bound to transform your book into the best possible version of itself. And not only that — they’ll also show you how to incorporate the changes yourself, so you can adjust as necessary for your next book.

For all these reasons and more, hiring an editor is one of the smartest moves you can make for your manuscript and your writing career as a whole. And you’ll find all the best editors for hire right here on Reedsy — editors in Calgary, and all other parts of Canada. Sign up to Reedsy and start meeting them today.
