Here you’ll find my thoughts about editing and grammar and the English language.
What are my qualifications, you ask?
Well, I’m a proofreader and copy editor who is currently working in-house for a publisher of fiction in Toronto, and I’m a voting member of the Editors’ Association of Canada. Before I forayed into the publishing world, I taught English usage and style to undergraduate students at the University of Guelph’s Learning and Writing Centre, University of Victoria’s Faculty of Business, and Queen’s University’s Faculty of Applied Science.
So I’ve got a good handle on writing genres from lab reports, history essays, and job applications to medical textbooks, requests for proposals, and novels. And—dare I say it?—I’ve got a pretty darn good lockdown on English grammar, too.
Please feel welcome to introduce yourself in the comments for this post if you’d like. I’m interested to know just who my audience is!
