Editors Canada Volunteer Participation
- Forum (Interactive Voice) (2011, 2012, 2013)
- National Executive Council (2014)
I help independent and small-press authors, publishers, nonprofits and academics ensure their message is clear, concise and compelling. My 25+ years of publishing experience combined with rock-solid writing and design skills means I can assist you at any stage of bringing your project to life.
Whether you want to educate, entertain, persuade, promote or tell a riveting story, whether your project is large or small, I help you make the most of your words—without changing your voice. I love language, and I treat your words as carefully as I would my own.
Clients say: "[Joanne was] patient, insightful and supportive... painstaking in her attention to detail at every stage in the process."
"Joanne's editing was a remarkably positive experience for me. From the outset, I sensed she was on my side and her edits were always thoughtful, considerate and supportive. After she was done her work, I realized I had a much improved manuscript – and still had my confidence as a writer."
