Get an experienced, dependable academic editor working for you! PhD, 10+ years experience. I edit journal articles, book manuscripts, grant applications, dissertations, CVs, cover letters, tenure applications, and even course material. I edit in a wide range of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities and beyond: psychology, fine arts, sociology, linguistics, education, social work, law, engineering, physics, philosophy, to name a few. I assist academic professionals and students from Canadian and international universities at all stages of their writing and publishing projects. See for an extensive portfolio of editing work I have done. I offer comprehensive editing that includes copy editing, substantive editing, and stylistic editing tailored to your publishing and writing needs. I find great satisfaction in helping academics express their ideas in strong, clear English. I have a PhD from the Centre for the Study of Religion, University of Toronto, and I am actively involved in researching, publishing, and presenting on traditional Mennonite groups. More recently, I have been engaged in a research project on Pride in the Manitoba Mennonite town of Steinbach.
