Katherine Duncombe - Editor

Saskatoon, SK

I am a Canadian editor trying to make it in the world. My goal is to be surrounded by wonderful books at all times.

Overview

I’m a lover of literature and my goal in life is to surround myself with books of all kinds. Having a career as an editor allows me to do what I love every day: read and fix errors! I’m a resident of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and am currently on the executive of the Saskatchewan branch of the Editors’ Association of Canada (EAC). I have four years editing experience and have successfully completed courses on editing, copy editing and proofreading out of Simon Fraser University. I am also undertaking a Publishing Certificate out of Ryerson University. My experience has taught me to be meticulous as well as detail-oriented, and because I am also skilled at managing my time, I have never missed a deadline to date.
