Profile

I edit and rewrite for researchers, memoirists, health agencies and more. I approach every document with precision, curiosity and a poet's care. 

Hand me your abstract, communications, report, article or monograph--whatever is weighing you down in draft form--and I'll hand you back a clear edit with constructive queries, concrete suggestions for revision, and clear copy edits. 

As a trained journalist (BJ, Carleton University), I am bent on clarity and economy in writing. I publish my own books of poetry and fiction, so I understand first-hand how tough it is to write well. I am committed to ongoing professional development and am currently enrolled in courses through Simon Fraser University's Editing program. Let me carry your message forward!

Here's what my clients have to say about my work:

Working with Marguerite was such a dream. Her clear communication and direction was so valuable. She was a steady guide which allowed us to meet a very tight deadline. I am extremely grateful to have been able to work with her and would highly recommend her. - Renee Turner, BC Society of Transition Houses

Working with Marguerite on two book manuscripts was delightful. She did a superb job editing my writing for orthography, style, clarity, structure, and content. She is meticulous, super reliable, punctual, quickly responds to queries, and offers feedback that’s clear, sensitive, and helpful. I cannot recommend her more highly. - Dr. Carlos Fraenkel, McGill University
