WHAT SCRIBBLE EDITING DOES BEST

EDITING WITH A CONSCIENCE

Voices from all backgrounds, experiences, and parts of the world are needed in the publishing industry. In my work I seek to support and uplift voices that have historically struggled to become published authors, particularly Indigenous authors. Editing Indigenous literature requires  understanding, humility, respect, and reciprocity, which I embody when working with Indigenous authors. 

MEET THE EDITOR

HELPING PUBLISHERS TO PERFECT MANUSCRIPTS

I am a Mi’kmaw writer and certified professional editor with a passion for storywork. I specialize in copy editing, proofreading and sensitivity reading, with a focus on Indigenous literature. I have helped numerous publishers and organizations, both big and small, bring new stories and voices out into the book world.
