EDITING

 

I'm a professional editor with 30 years in the publishing industry (magazines, newspapers). I have edited authors in a number of genres, including memoirists, journalists, and academics. 

Having worked as a writer, both freelance and on staff, I know how time-crunched content creators are, and how much they need a second set of eyes.

 

I can help with: 

  • structural and line edit that memoir you've been sitting on for years

  • catch inconsistencies in thesis or academic journal paper 

  • clarify your company's story to better connect with your audience

  • structural edit of reports, case studies, white papers for better flow and structure

  • check existing communications for consistent messaging and an easier read

  • oversee social media content -- blog posts, twitter feed, web copy

  • fact-check white papers

My editing portfolio includes: 

  • Copyedit memoir of Martin Connell, co-founder Ace Bakery 

  • Preliminary substantive edit of memoir by Laurie Haughton, Through the Lens of Motherhood

  • social media editor, Web Geeks 

  • Twitter feed, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto

  • substantive and copyedit of various PhD and Masters theses

  • on-staff editor, national consumer magazines
