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.

Does your text need just a minor tweak, or a major intervention? Either way, I make it more reader-friendly.

My specialty is Plain Language, and my goal is to simplify and focus your writing -- to help you connect better with your readers.

What kind of material do you need help with? A book or a novel? A website or a blog? A PowerPoint presentation or a magazine article? Whatever it is, I’ve likely done it before.

Over the past two decades, I've helped a wide range of people to improve their:

reports and publications * ads and promotional material * mission statements * newspaper stories * media releases * speeches * training manuals * correspondence *CVs  and resumes * charts & graphs & forms * audits & analyses * user guides * essays, theses and dissertations * newsletters * posters, flyers & brochures * lesson plans & tutorials * white papers & fact sheets * CD or album copy * even poetry.

There's no form of written material that I can't perk up, and give more oomph and clarity.

My past and present clients include organizations, associations, businesses, corporations, publications, government departments and agencies, as well as academics, authors, journalists and marketing companies.

Ask me how I can make YOUR communication more effective!
