Jesse Marchand

Vancouver, BC V5N 1J6
Experienced public speaker, available to talk to groups and associations about editors and editing.


I have been working in publishing houses for the past 10 years and I teach courses on editing through Simon Fraser University. My primary experience is in editing and rewriting cookbooks but I have also edited a variety of non-fiction genres over the years. I also have experience writing and editing for newspapers and understand the nature of writing short and accessible copy. I can easily handle projects of any size, from one-page leaflets to 400-page books and beyond.
