Title: Looking for a Canadian Editor for MG Manuscript
Post by: linda-browne on September 11, 2020, 02:35 PM
Can any Canadian members recommend a good children's book editor for a full developmental/structural edit? (The current exchange rate makes billing in US dollars prohibitive.)

Thanks!

Hi Linda,

I'm a Canadian freelance editor and writer that specializes in critiquing and editing children's manuscripts, including MG. Here's a link to my website: http://www.susanhughes.ca/manuscript-critiques; and here is a link to some testimonials: http://www.susanhughes.ca/testimonials-manuscript-critiquing-and-story-coaching.  I'd be happy to send you more information, as well as a quote, and answer any questions you might have. Please get in touch with me at susanhughes@sympatico.ca.

All the best, Linda,
Susan

Hi Susan,

Great to meet a fellow Canuck.

Right after I posted, I discovered that Pitch Wars will soon be open for submissions so I think I'll give that a shot first. I will definitely follow up with you after the results are announced in November.  Thanks so much for getting in touch.

Best,
Linda
