Writing short is hard. I can help.
I work with artists and researchers as they articulate their goals to an audience of their peers. Your work is important: if you want it to be read, understood, cited, and acted upon, you should work with an editor.
With a PhD in English Literature, experience reviewing arts & culture grants for the Vancouver Foundation, and success in editing ~$4M of research funding proposals, I specialize in editing artists’ funding applications and academic work in the health sciences, social sciences, and humanities. I also write a monthly column for UniversityAffairs.ca called “Ask Dr. Editor.”
My expertise is in proofreading and editing grant applications and research article manuscripts, drawing on the principles of plain language and design. I also:
- advise on teaching dossiers and statements of teaching philosophy;
- create clear, compelling visuals;
- copyedit and proofread theses and dissertations; and,
- update and advise on the strategic use of Canadian Common CVs.
