You know the routine: you sit down to write and surf the internet instead. Or maybe you wash the dishes, walk the dog (my personal favorite), edit just once more, or do any of the myriad [...]
fully admit it: I’m nosy. I don’t know if writing or curiosity came first, but I can’t separate the two. And I don’t really want to. Everybody has a story and I love telling them.
I’m a writing, editing and grant consultant. I live on Treaty 6 lands in amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton, Alberta) and use my love of words and stories to help you polish your writing and grant applications.
Quite simply, I love my work. I sometimes have the privilege to work with authors to develop their manuscript, whether fiction or non-fiction, and help them get it to a publisher. At other times, I work directly with publishers and help them honour the words and stories of the authors they work with. I use my love of stories to write strong grants for non-profit organizations and artists so they can bring their visions to a wider audience. And, maybe most importantly, I am beginning to work with business, organizations and university classes to help them understand the importance of working with Indigenous writers and stories with the perspectives and experiences of Indigenous peoples at the forefront of the work they do.
My clients are diverse and lovely to work with – I have been fortunate to build relationships with some of them and get to know their dreams and needs. If you need the help of a word nerd who is passionate about the work she does, my contact information is below and I look forward to chatting with you.
