Editing

 

As a writer and editor, I realize that writing is both a solitary pursuit and a collaborative effort. I was the copy editor and proofreader of thirdspace: a journal of feminist theory and culture from 2005 to 2010 and have worked full-time as a copywriter, editor, and production editor in scholarly book publishing since 2007. Although my interests are diverse, I particularly enjoy editing books about history, art and culture, and First Nations.
