Looking to Serve You Better
Infinite Pathways is founded on the notion that all writers deserve the best for their work. As a writer it is important to put your best foot forward the first time. You want your fans and potential readers to take you seriously and the worst thing you can do is publish a book with plotting errors, weak characters, grammar mistakes, and typos (just to name a few common mistakes). Asking a friend or family member to edit your work is great in the early stages of your work but unless they work in the writing/editing/publishing profession there are still key elements that will be missed. It is imperative to build a writing nest egg with a large portion of your savings set aside for professional editing.
Here’s where I.P. can help. The standard rate for a professional editor runs anywhere from $3/page – $7/page depending on the type of editing you require. Most new and emerging writers want to put out a professional product but don’t have the professional budget to make it a reality.
Don’t let your work suffer – your first and second book are integral to getting readers to follow you.
That’s why I.P. has set up a graduated fee scale or sliding scale that gives new and emerging writers a big break on professional pricing. We want to help bridge the gap between the novice and the professional writers. Try us out for a free assessment with your first chapter and learn for yourself what an experienced set of eyes can do for your work.

NOTE: Please query for services using the contact tab and leave detailed information about the genre, target audience, and total number of pages in your manuscript.
For content editing I.P. currently specializes in Young Adult, New Adult, & Adult Science Fiction, Fantasy, Supernatural, and general fiction. I.P. accepts manuscripts outside of its specialties, however, the client must first query with specific details to assure a good editing match.
It is said that ‘in life, you never stop learning’ and this couldn’t be more true for writers at any stage in their writing career. Attending conferences, workshops, and taking courses are what helps us grow and makes our work that much better.
Keeping with the theme of helping writers improve, hone, and develop their skills as professionals we offer both public and scholastic workshops on self & partner editing and characterization.
I.P. offers local workshops at different times of the year with various price ranges. We like to keep location to the GTA and South Muskoka Regions because of the lack of resources in this area as compared to the big T.O. (Toronto). Pricing varies simply because the cost of venues is different in every sub-region. While the actual cost of a given workshop may only be $5/person, the cost of the rental space then needs to be factored in.

Infinite Pathways wants to make you, the writer, shine. In order to be considered a professional, or carry some weight as a querying novice, authors need to develop their platforms (portfolios). Traditionally, entering a writing contest held by a big-name company in the industry would be the most common way to earn writing credentials if submitting articles to the local paper isn’t your thing. Those contests receive thousands of entries and of those thousands only a hand full reap the rewards. With the advent of the internet and blogging self-publishing online is expected of writers. However, this is still you on your own in the world. Providing ‘guest content’ for different websites and blogs has become one of the fastest growing options for writers to make a name for themselves.
I.P. wants to help you build your author platform. We offer free submission for poetry, flash fiction, writerly rants, and notables. There is even an option for newly published authors to publicize themselves with interviews and book reviews. Help grow your platform by taking advantage of publishing with a distinguished blog.
