Your words are important to you. My extensive experience in publishing and working with authors allows me to help you present them professionally, with the sensitivity and support all writers benefit from, so your message is clear, concise and compelling. I help you connect with your readers, whether you want to educate, entertain, persuade, promote or tell a riveting story.
Editorial services include everything from manuscript evaluation to copy editing to proofreading. I look at the big picture of structure and flow, as well as zero in on the finer points: finessing language, ensuring accuracy, checking consistency and watching for redundancy as well as being a bit of a grammar cop — all while preserving your voice.
Clients include small-press and self-publishing authors, publishers, academics, non-profit organizations, government agencies and businesses. I’ve worked on everything from books, magazines, newsletters, academic and scholarly material, websites, social media and online learning to reports and promotional copy.
Solid writing and design know-how means I can ensure all the elements of your project play nice together, and I can jump in at any stage or manage the whole shebang. I also have access to a pool of talented colleagues who can pitch in whenever additional expertise is needed.
I have an Honours BA in English and am a longtime member of Editors Canada, the national association for professional editors. I love language, and I treat your words as carefully as I would my own.
