Thanks for visiting. I’m an editor of both fiction and non-fiction material. I love helping writers realize their dreams of becoming authors and sharing their stories with the world. I can help you create clear and engaging content that readers can connect with. My ultimate goal is to make your writing shine.
Whether you’re a writer looking to polish a manuscript for submission or self-publishing, a publisher looking for a freelance editor, or a business looking to create clear communications for its clients, I'd love to help. Please contact me for a free sample edit and estimate.
"I love working with Melissa. Her editorial feedback is clear, and any clarifying questions she poses serve to foster my own writing skills in their ongoing development. Melissa is professional in her attention to detail and adherence to both predictable and shifting deadlines. I recommend her as a valuable addition to any writing or publication project."
—Kim Davids Manadar, author and magazine publisher for Best Version Media
I'm a freelance editor and a lover of all things books. I've worked with a variety of clients, including independent authors, publishers, and businesses. I'm also a magazine editor. I have a bachelor's degree in business from the Schulich School of Business at York University and a post-grad publishing certificate from Ryerson University.
My job is to help your writing be the best that it can be.
Writing a book, a short story, an article, or a report takes hard work and dedication. To be at the point where you're searching for an editor is a major achievement—congratulations on that! Whether you choose to self-publish or submit to a traditional publisher, you want your work to be the best that it can be. That's where an editor comes in. I offer structural editing, stylistic editing, copy editing, and proofreading.
Please contact me to discuss your project.
"Every business needs an editor like Melissa. She is meticulous, respectful, and tactful. She helps make our business communications clear and concise, and she is a pleasure to work with. There is nothing like a professional editor to help take your work to the next level. I highly recommend Melissa's editing services."
