Renate Preuss

Vancouver, BC


I've been a freelance copy editor, proofreader and copy writer since 2001, following 10 years working in-house with corporate, magazine and news publications. My keen eye for detail, consistency and continuity ensures a first-class product. Recent and ongoing contracts include copyediting or proofing corporate histories, contemporary art books, memoirs and trade fiction, as well as writing descriptive video scripts. I work at home via email and generally have a flexible schedule.
