Contact me regarding all your copyediting needs!

Have you written a story? Do you want your manuscript to catch a publisher’s or agent’s attention? A professionally edited submission can make a significant impact on the first person who reads it, and can give your work an advantage over the other submissions in the pile.

If you are pursing self-publishing, having a story that has been professionally edited will help you receive better reviews.

I specialize in editing genre fiction for writers who are polishing a final draft of their manuscript. I also have experience in legal and business terminology, website content, and academic papers.

With a BA in English and history and a MA in history, I am familiar with both MLA and Chicago styles, and I am qualified to copyedit academic papers in arts and social sciences. My research interests include Canadian history, métis history, colonialism/post-colonialism, twentieth century conflicts, art history, British history, textual analysis, archival theory, Canadian literature, and speculative fiction.

Please contact me through this form, and I would be pleased to discuss your project and provide you with a quote. I have a competitive hourly rate, and in order to give you a quote I will ask for your total word count and a sample of a few chapters of your work.

What is copyediting?

Copyediting is checking an author’s work for consistency in formatting and mechanics (including punctuation), examination of alphabetization and numbering of footnotes and works cited, correcting grammar, syntax, and spelling, Canadianizing spelling and usage where necessary, and suggesting revisions to wordy, convoluted, or unclear sections. Copyediting does NOT include fact checking, major structural edits, or review of logic.
