Editing

I offer substantive editing, copy editing, and proofreading services for a variety of nonfiction publications, including

  • trade books
  • textbooks
  • scholarly journals and books
  • magazine articles
  • market research reports
  • annual reports
  • manuals and guides

As a certified professional editor with a background in science and training in plain language principles, I have an acute understanding of the importance of precise language and specialize in clearly conveying complex concepts to a general audience. I strive always to sensitively balance the needs of the author with those of the readership.

In 2012 I received the Editors’ Association of Canada’s Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence in recognition of my work.

Past editing projects include

I also provide both narrative and technical writing and rewriting services as needed. Trained in technical communication, I am a strong researcher and have authored both print and online articles and manuals.
