Profile

Tereza is an erudite editor, avid reader, and passionate writer with a thirst for quality and inspiring work.

She holds a B.A. Honors degree in English Literature and is a participant of the Acclaimed Professional Writing Conference – Paris Writer’s Retreat with Wendy Goldman-Rohm. 

Tereza runs her own freelance editing company, EDITER, and has edited numerous high-profile texts such as Portrait of an Artist by Hugo Huerta Marin, A Seat at the Table by Solange Knowles, and has had a long-standing working relationship with Switzerland-based author Fiona Hood-Stewart – a leading romance and historical fiction writer with seven best-selling novels under her belt. Tereza edited her most-recent novel The Woman Behind the Tattoo.

Tereza often contributes more than a basic level of editing for her clients. She is at ease in helping authors re-structure and even at times, re-write portions of their texts; adding to the composition of the work as a whole. It is this level of untiring commitment to the realization of the author's vision while maintaining a high standard of legibility and interest for the reader that has created a flourishing of freelance contracts for her in a very short time span.

Tereza is currently working on her first novel and splits her time between Montreal, New York, and Switzerland.

Tereza managed to keep my voice and stayed within the tone of my work, something other editors have struggled with in the past. She is by far the best editor I have ever worked with.

She did extreme corrections of grammatical errors that used my book’s very technical vocabulary—that was very impressive!

– Non-fiction writer

Tereza did an excellent job. She went through my entire manuscript very meticulously and made sure all the errors in punctuation, grammar, and sentence structure were edited. I really appreciate her excellent work. The manuscript is on a technical subject but she managed to interpret the sentence structures correctly and suggested corrections and improvements. I greatly appreciate this too. Overall, she did an excellent job. No doubt about it.

– Fiction writer

I can always count on Tereza to complete copy editing projects with tight deadlines. The time constraints do not prevent her from effectively doing her job, nor do they compromise her level of commitment and accuracy. I’ve been working with Tereza for over three years, and I have no intention of finding another copyeditor; she’s by far the best, and incredibly easy to work with.

Best money spent in a while!

– Non-fiction writer

As a first-time author, I did not know what to expect regarding the editing process. Tereza was there for me every step of the way and “held my hand” throughout. Her perfectionism and professionalism are incredibly rare to find, and it is clear that she takes pride in her work. Because of her help, my book received tremendous praise, which I would not have received otherwise. I’m looking forward to working with her on my next project.

– Non-fiction writer

Tereza went above and beyond editing my document. She made a total of 168 comments related to the book on top of over 13,000 modifications. She provided information such as deleting certain sentences that will make the book better. I thank her for the work she performed.
