Overview

How do you know if I’m the right editor for you?

Let’s start with a free sample of my work. Give me about 10 pages of something you’ve written, something you would like to have edited. I’ll edit it for free. If you’re happy with my editing, we can discuss working together.

As a daily newspaper editor, and now as a freelance editor, I’ve worked with many writers. I enjoy helping them make their writing the best it can be.

To show you some of my own writing, I’ve included my published poems and short stories on my website.

As a newspaper editor, I edited material about a wide range of topics, including gardening, town council meetings, books, religion, travel, real estate, entertainment, business and the provincial legislature and politics.

As a freelance editor I have edited novels, dissertations and scholarly papers.

I have worked with The Canadian Press, Modern Language Association and American Psychological Association styles guides.
