Profile

I'm a copy and stylistic editor focusing in non-fiction and short-form content for publishers, indie authors, businesses and organizations. I specialize in writing that is inclusive and intersectional, and I’m a big believer in the old standby that you never stop learning. My hope is to give back to the LGBTQ+, environmental activism, and literary communities as a stylistic and copy editor.

Education:

I hold a BA from St. Thomas University, a Visual Arts Certificate in Studio from NSCAD University, and a Certificate in Publishing from Ryerson University. At Ryerson I earned a professional development award for completing the Chang School's course series in children's publishing.

Testimonials:

On top of her editorial skills, Meaghan has shown a lot of dedication and passion to her work, which will be a great asset to any team or project!” – Jingwei Zhang, Digital Marketing Coordinator, Nimbus Publishing

“Meaghan has been a wonderful addition to our content team. Her pieces are thoughtful, articulate & compelling. We can provide her with direction, and can trust her to get it right. I highly recommend working with her!” – Stefanie, Halifax Paper Hearts
