How does it work?

Let’s talk. Tell me a bit about your project, what you feel it needs, your timeline, and your budget. In most cases, I will ask you for a few sample pages so I can give you a more accurate estimate of how long the work will take and what it will cost. Once we’ve come to an agreement, I will ask you to sign a contract and then we’re off to the races! 

Here are a few things that may help you decide whether we’re a good fit:

      • I am happy to take projects on short notice if my schedule permits.

       • I have extensive experience working with writers whose first language is not English.

       • Many of my clients come from the arts sector.

       • I do not do STM (science, technology, medicine) editing, but I'm open to just about anything else.

       • All work on theses and dissertations requires the written approval of the advisor.

       • I am a member in good standing of Editors Canada.

       • I use the Editors Canada Standard Freelance Editorial Agreement, which can be tailored to the specifics of your project.

        • Billing is by the hour or the project.

        • A 50% deposit, preferably via e-transfer, is usually required to secure services.
