Tereza Racekova - Editor

Montreal, QC, Canada

I'm an avid reader and passionate writer with a thirst for quality and inspiring work.

Overview

I hold a B.A. Honors degree in English Literature and am a participant of the Acclaimed Professional Writing Conference – Paris Writer’s Retreat with Wendy Goldman-Rohm

I often contribute more than a basic level of editing for my clients. I am at ease helping authors re-structure and even at times, re-write portions of their texts; adding to the composition of the work as a whole. It is this level of untiring commitment to the realization of the author's vision while maintaining a high standard of legibility and interest for the reader, that has created a flourishing of freelance contracts in a very short time span.
