I edit with both a logical mind and a poetic mind. I can analyze the structure of your manuscript and identify gaps in the argument or flaws in the narrative. I can sense what you’re trying to say and guide you toward greater clarity. I am attuned to the music of language — the rhythm, staccato, and legato of words and sentences. And, of course, I can correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, and usage.
I am a member of Editors Canada and adhere to the standards set out by Professional Editorial Standards, a document that outlines the skills and knowledge that you can expect from me.
