S. Robin Larin


With my background in literature, writing, and teaching, I bring the heart of a writer and the mind of an English professor to your work.

Robin Editorial — Your Words Taking Wing! Developmental Editing, Stylistic Copy Editing, and Proofreading

Specialising in literary, children’s, and speculative fiction (science fiction and fantasy), especially for self-publishing writers. Christian fiction welcome!

Literature and language have been my passion since childhood. I hold a BA in English Literature and Liberal Arts (Concordia University), an MA in English (University of Toronto), an MA in Creative Writing (Concordia University), and most of a PhD in English and Literary Theory (ABD) (McMaster University). Currently I’m completing Simon Fraser University’s online Editing Certificate to polish my professional credentials (and because I’ll always be a student at heart :) ).

Years of teaching, volunteer editing in numerous contexts, and writing and analysis of fiction and non-fiction have honed my instincts for writing that reaches the heart and mind of the reader—writing that is clear, powerful, and beautiful. Your writing, made its best self with my help.

Although I specialize in fiction editing, my interests are wide-ranging, and I’ll happily edit non-fiction as well.

Contact me to set your words soaring!
