Barbara Howe


I am a freelance copy editor and proofreader with a love of the lyrical beauty of the English language. I graduated from the University of Regina with a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a Major in History (specialization in British, Canadian and American history) and a Minor in English (concentration in creative writing). I worked two years as a Teaching Assistant in the History Department providing copyediting and proofreading feedback on academic essays.

In November 2016, I completed the six-week Print and Digital Editing Immersion Workshop at Simon Fraser University, because of my desire to start editing non-fiction and fiction books.
