I’m a trained copy editor. I earned an A+ in Ryerson University’s renowned copy editing course, and I was nominated for an award for excellence in book editing. I’ve edited books, online course materials, web copy, and worksheets, not to mention my own essays and blog posts. I’m extremely good at what I do.
The thought of an editor so often conjures up images of a red pen and a wagging finger, but I’m not that kind of editor. I’m thorough (some would say a perfectionist), but I’m never mean or judgmental. I believe that the best editors work in partnership with authors with the shared goal of getting their message out in the most powerful way possible.
