Profile

I edit, rewrite and evaluate manuscripts for researchers, health agencies and writers. I approach every document with curiosity, precision 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 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. 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
