Say Hello to Editors Canada

We’re transitioning to the Editors Canada brand. Over the next few months you’ll find our new look and messaging taking shape in our national and regional literature, emails and social media presence. Later this year we’ll be launching a fresh new website. Learn more about this exciting project.

Editors' Association of Canada

Audra Gorgiev


I am a professional freelance editor (copyediting, line editing, and technical editing) and proofreader with over 15 years of experience editing a wide variety of written material (including textbooks, tests, assessments and e-learning material; scientific, medical, and technical journal articles; corporate documentation and marketing materials; ESL documents; as well as other nonfiction work).

My references will attest to my determination to accept nothing short of perfection in my work. I strive for complete accuracy and the highest degree of professionalism in the work I complete, and use Canadian Press, APA, Chicago, AMA, and AP manuals of style (and others) as required (or create house styles for clients). In addition to editing in MS Word, Adobe Acrobat, and MS PowerPoint, I am also well-versed in authoring tools and content management tools (such as Delta and SharePoint), and very comfortable working with HTML.

My editing and proofreading skills extend across many subjects and business needs—you could say that I am an “editing savant”—and have always been the hidden accomplice behind any successful document. Grammar, punctuation, clarity, formatting, and rapid turnaround are my specialties, whatever the document may be; and I work electronically or with hard copy. I am a passionate perfectionist when it comes to a succinct, well-written and mistake-free document—that oh-so-important first impression. My time is very flexible and I am on call six days a week for long- or short-term projects; my computer is fired up at 8 a.m. and is on until 10:30 p.m. MST.
