I am a certified copy editor with 19 years of experience. I specialize in detail work (copy editing and proofreading) -- picking out the nits, but avoiding pedantry. My work includes everything from academic journal articles to poetry, consultants' reports to children's books. My wide-ranging background includes an MSc in ethnobotany, editing courses from Ryerson and SFU, and extensive on-the-job editorial training. I am familiar with many styles, including Chicago and APA. It would be my pleasure to give your writing a professional editor's polish. Please visit my website for more information and testimonials.
