Primary contact: 


I am a former university English professor (University of Toronto, Trent University) with over 13 years’ experience as an academic copy-editor at the University of Toronto Press. I have copy-edited premier journals on drama, law, gerontology, criminology, American studies, library science, language learning, and math and veterinary education, earning the respect of editors and authors alike. My work is careful and accurate. I am especially good at stylistic editing, both for ESL authors and for native speakers.


Skills: stylistic editing; on-screen copy-editing and querying authors; tagging for typesetting; proof mark-up;  legal, social sciences, and MLA citations; editing tables; abstracting; rewriting; corresponding in French as necessary
