Overview

Since 2010, I have been editing various forms of text. From coffee table art books to novels to magazines (both online and print). I love editing and proofreading, I love the sense of accomplishment in helping someone else get that much closer to seeing their work out in the world for people to see. After completing my Honours Bachelors of Arts in Professional Writing and English in 2013, I took my education and publishing experience further by completing a Graduate Certificate in Publishing (Book, Magazine, and Electronic) in 2015. I have experience editing in the Canadian Style Guide, Chicago Manual of Style (16th edition), and in-house Style Guides, so regardless of what guide you follow, I can proof to your needs.
