Nora Adshade



As an LGBT+ editor and writer, I know the power of words.

I help writers like you make your writing kinder for your readers, whether that means fixing grammatical errors that could trip up your reader, or ensuring all language is inclusive. I specialize in LGBT+ inclusive language in plain-language documents, academic writing about literature, creative nonfiction, poetry, and fiction. I offer structural editing, stylistic editing, copy editing, proofreading, and sensitivity reading.

I offer additional services focused on content creation, web content, and fact checking. You can learn more about all of my services on my website.

About Me

I graduated with a BA from Dalhousie University, majoring in English and Creative Writing with a minor in Classics. Specific focuses included advanced writing and grammar, mystery and detective fiction, science fiction, high fantasy, gothic fiction, journalism, Greco-Roman religions and beliefs, and copyright law. I am currently enrolled in Simon Fraser University's Certificate of Editing. 

Besides English writing and queer rights, I am also interested in the environment and eco-friendly living, gardening and houseplants, baking and cooking, sewing and DIY, and mental health.

I live in Halifax, NS with my roommate and two cats. I use she/her pronouns and am a bi ace member of the LGBT+ community.
