From AIDS posters to web text to white papers, I have edited nearly every type of document a large organization produces. After 12 years of editing, I began writing speeches, news releases, magazine articles—even a book chapter—and background documents for new legislation.
But making writing clearer gives me joy. With Editing Canadian English in one hand and a stack of plain language guides in the other, I’m creating crisp sentences, even tone, and subtle (but correct!) punctuation.
I create style guides for those who awake in the night to pressing questions like Do we use a comma before “and”? (If you don’t use it, perhaps you should.)
