Abby Siegel – Editor

I am a freelance editor, proofreader, and writer. Send me your ghost stories!


Hello all! My name is Abby, and I am excited to work with you on your books! I have an M.A. in Classics from the University of Manitoba, where I specialized in Latin language and literature. I currently teach Latin part-time online.
I have done extensive editing and research work, including: preparing and editing entries for a U of M professor's upcoming Latin dictionary; proofreading and editing student and academic papers; and proofreading and editing lesson materials.
I am also an avid reader, so that helps! I write book reviews at and on Reedsy Discovery.
As for publishing experience, I regularly publish short works of fiction and poetry on Medium, and I self-published a poetry collection, Loss And Other Landscapes.

I love working with language, words, and literature - it's like a wonderful creative puzzle for the mind!
I enjoy reading all types of works, but my favorites are short works like short stories and novellas.

I look forward to working with you!
