Editors for hire in Canada

Looking for an editor for hire in Canada? Look no further — the best are already on Reedsy!

First, make sure that you know what kind of an edit your manuscript needs. A professional edit will work wonders — but only your story is at the proper stage for it. Are you struggling, for instance, with nailing the “big picture” elements of your story, such as pacing, characterization, and structure? Then you need a developmental edit. Only once when developmental stage is over can you start thinking about a copy edit — a kind of edit that catches all of the granular mistakes that you made in your draft. Finally, the proofread, a final sweep and clean-up of the entire document, is the last edit that a book will undergo before publication.

Each kind of editor will specialize in a different discipline, so it’s important to know what your manuscript requires before reaching out to a publishing professional for aid. Not only should you ensure that the kind of edit you’re seeking is right, you also should make sure that your chosen editor possesses the right experience for it. The ideal book editor will have years of experience in the industry and knowledge of your specific genre. Since you’ll be working so close with them, it’s also a plus if their personality and vision for the book aligns with yours.

To maximize your chances of matching with the right professional, we vet and accept only the top 5% of talent on our marketplace — meaning that the best editors to help you with all your writing needs are just a click of the finger away. Our editors have worked on bestselling books such as The Hunger Games and bestselling authors such as Neil Gaiman, Joyce Carol Oates, and George R.R. Martin.
