Welcome to Planet Word

*  Editing, Writing and  Mentoring Services *

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website.

Looking for a reliable, versatile, results-oriented editor and writer? You’ve found her! I’m a freelance writer, editor and mentor, based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. And my company is Planet Word

Through Planet Word, I offer a selection of freelance (editorial) services, such as editing (including copy editing and proofreading), writing, researching, project and content management, fact-checking, project and content consultation and mentoring. I work on everything from adult and children’s fiction and non-fiction, consumer and trade magazines, web content, (e)newsletters and educational material to guides/reports, ads, curatorial material, press releases and book reviews. My experience and interests are vast and varied, which are reflected in the clients, projects, publications and volunteer work found in my online portfolio.

I’m happy to provide you with a free quote for your project, including an estimated price, the length of time and work required and a proposed delivery date. What I require from you are: a few sample pages of your project; the total word count (and/or number of pages); your editorial needs; your (approximate) budget; and your deadline. Please contact me directly regarding my availability and my rates.
