Primary contact: 


Your words are worth editing. Whatever story you want to tell, idea you want to share, or message you want to deliver, working with an editor will enhance the impression your words make. This could mean developing character motivation, restructuring content for better flow, or refining language, grammar, and punctuation.

Maybe you have a manuscript that needs a stylistic edit before you submit it to an agent or publisher, or website content that you’d like copy edited before you launch it to the public. Maybe you’ve written only the first draft of your novel, and you’d like to consult with an editor before you begin writing the second.

As your editor, I’ll work closely with you to to get your project ready for its intended audience. 

During the past decade, I’ve edited newspaper articles, educational videos, blogs, catalogue copy, newsletters and over a dozen books. Most of my writing and editing experience is within arts, culture, and education; it includes work for The Source Newspaper, BC Book Prizes, Government of BC, Anvil Press, and The University of Saskatchewan.

My editorial services include structural editing, stylistic editing, and copy editing. I’m also available for manuscript consultations.
