Laura Legge

Toronto, ON M6S



I am a copyeditor, proofreader, and writer with eight years of professional experience. I have an MFA from New York University and a Publishing Certificate from Ryerson University, as well as an Honours BA from the University of Toronto. I have worked for diverse institutions and companies, including The University of Toronto, Koyama Press, Harlequin/HarperCollins, and Health Quality Ontario, and many wonderful individual clients. My own writing has appeared in many journals and magazines, and I won the PEN International New Voices Award and the RBC/PEN Canada New Voices Award.

I understand that your voice is one-of-a-kind and that your work is a unique offering to the world, whether it is a novel, a poem, a teacher's guide, or an academic essay. I consider it a privilege to be able to read and edit others' work, and I will treat both you and your manuscript with compassion and care.

I look forward to hearing from you.

All warmest,
