What my clients say:

“Becky is doing some great work writing for Nelson—she's creative and meticulous. It's a pleasure to review the work she's providing using our usual templates. She completes all the fields required. Her work needs very little correction and any corrections made are carried forward in the next assignment.”

—Diane Robitaille, Professional Freelancer, Nelson, 2020

 

“It was a pleasure working with Becky. She recently completed the copyedit of a STEM-focused manuscript for middle readers as her first project with Annick Press. Becky quickly adapted to the nuances of our house style and asked pertinent questions at the outset of the project, making for an efficient working process. Her copyediting was detail-oriented and reflected both her background in science and her understanding of the reading level for the age group--a rare combination to find in a copyeditor. Her communication throughout was prompt and clear. I would recommend Becky with confidence and I look forward to working with her on future projects.”

—Kaela Cadieux, Managing Editor, Annick Press, 2020

 

“I would highly recommend Becky Noelle’s editing and writing. She created and edited the new website and Facebook page for the Swiss Folk Dance Club Alpenrösli in Calgary. I was very impressed with her precise work, inspired editing, and all the research she did to learn about the traditions and history of Swiss folk dances and dress. She included wishes and suggestions from club members, and the result is a very lively and up-to-date website. I recommend Becky’s inspiring writing to all my friends and colleagues.”

—Daniela Raduner, President Swiss Folk Dance Club Alpenrösli, 2020
