Margaret Phillips Editing

1342 Fair Ave
Peterborough, ON K9K 2K8


I have an Editing Certificate (SFU) and research and writing background in the social sciences and humanities (BA, Trent; MA, Carleton). I’ve also worked in health care as a physiotherapist (BSc, Queen’s). All of that makes me a great fit to work with writers who focus on social issues.

I work with individual writers, small businesses, and not-for-profit organizations, editing different kinds of documents.

  • Business: reports and proposals; websites, blogs, and social media posts
  • Funding: proposals and grant applications
  • Self-published authors: narrative non-fiction
  • Education: PhD dissertations and professional journal articles; digital workplace-training modules

I specialize in social justice, equity, health, and the environment.
