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 fiction, children’s fiction (all levels, from YA to rhyming picture books), and speculative fiction (science fiction and fantasy) for self-publishing and traditionally 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). In 2020 I completed Simon Fraser University’s online Editing Certificate to polish my professional credentials, and I pursue ongoing professional development (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 gladly edit non-fiction as well. Please, no erotica  or horror/ supernatural work.

Contact me to set your words soaring!
