Editing

Editing

Even the best writers can attest to the benefits of having an experienced and impartial reader check their work for clarity, grammar and readability. In 2017-2018, I acted as managing editor for Rising Up! / Viser haut !, a weekly blog published on the Christ Church Cathedral Major Fundraising Campaign website. I was privileged to edit texts by experienced and inexperienced contributors and am still quite proud of the work we did for this important Montreal establishment.

I have also edited articles written by top engineers in the power generation industry, legal procedures, reports and briefs, correspondence and emails for CEOs, and even a couple of writers’ manuscripts!
