About Me


Hi, I’m Letitia.

I am a fine-details person who enables others to express themselves clearly and concisely. My job is to help scholars and researchers articulate their skills, experiences, and plans to the right audience in the right genre. While I’ve taught effective writing strategies to a range of audiences, in my consultations and editing, I focus on grant applications and manuscripts for established researchers and graduate students.

In May 2018, I won the Claudette Upton Scholarship from Editors Canada.

My PhD (U Toronto, 2015) analyzed the politics that underlie bad ballads written at the end of the nineteenth century. For a taste of my academic research and the work I do now, please visit my online portfolio.

My first name rhymes with “militia” and is derived from the Latin for “joy”.
