I have received training in editing through the Ryerson University Publishing Certificate, and I have hands-on experience editing through my work in communications and as the editor of Peninsula Magazine and Stonecrop Review.
In 2019, I received the Charles Oberdorf Memorial Award, which is awarded to a student on the Publishing Certificate who shows promise in the field of magazine publishing. In 2020, I was awarded the Editors Canada Claudette Upton Scholarship and I was nominated for the Rosemary Shipton Award for Excellence in Book Editing.
I can provide substantive and copy editing (i.e. big picture feedback on structure, plot and content, or nitty-gritty feedback on grammar and punctuation) for literary fiction and creative non-fiction. I have a particular interest in writing that explores our relationship with the natural world and the intersection of nature and culture.
