Offering editing of all kinds, manuscript reviews, and proofreading.

For professors

I specialize in editing research materials for professors who use English as a second language. For graduate students I edit theses and dissertations. Because writing styles are very different, I do not charge a flat hourly rate. Please send your document for a quote.

“Graham did copy editing for me a few times. He is very precise and logical in his thinking. I highly recommend him for copy editing.” ~ Professor Carson Woo, Sauder School of Business, UBC.

For students

If your university’s regulations allow you to hire an editor, I can copy edit your class assignment or essay. With over 25 years of experience in multicultural contexts as teacher, writer, and editor, I can quickly improve your document.

I have helped many writers who use English as a second language, and I welcome inquiries from international students who are studying in Canada.

Clients say

“After a long plod alone with my book /Treason/, I felt fortunate in locating a professional editor like Graham. His evaluation was concise and gave an overview of the salient points. He outlined the problems with choices of how to fix them. Detailed, page-numbered notes brought it to about eight pages in all, compliments included. I thought the bill was reasonable. Recommending Graham is easy: he’s professional, reliable and has a gentle delivery.” Janet Hudgins, author of “Treason.”

Substantive editing for non-fiction writers

I specialize in substantive or structural editing of non-fiction: memoirs, biographies, travel, handbooks, and more. I help authors to re-organize their material for better readability, and suggest what could be removed, and where more is needed.  My customers include authors who will self-publish, and those looking for an agent for traditional publishing.

Clients say

“Graham did a perceptive structural edit of my manuscript /Dancing With Bears. His astute analysis and constructive feedback helped me get it to another level.” David Litvak, author of “Dancing with Bears in the Kootenays”
