I’m happy to announce that I’m open for freelance editing projects! While I have also worked as an editor of poetry and non-fiction, I would hope to keep my freelance editing in the realm of fiction, where I am most comfortable.
For my credentials: I have served as in varying capacities for The Spectatorial, The Goose, The Hart House Review, The White Wall Review, Terse Journal, Filling Station Magazine, and The Wrong Publishing Chapbook Series. I also served as a judge on The Hart House Literary Prize, and I am the editor of a collection of essays for Guernica Editions, due to hit shelves in a year or so. I have also taught courses in the art of editing at Sheridan College.
As of now, I can consider both standalone short works, and full manuscript sized projects of fiction. While I have an internal pay scale, I am happy to discuss your budget and timeline and come to an agreement wherein you (the author) and I can give the work the time and attention it needs. Please reach out via the Contact Me of this website to get in touch and start the discussion!
