Ellie Barton

I’m a trained and experienced developmental, line, and copy editor of memoir, nonfiction, and scholarly books. I teach editing at Queen’s University and Simon Fraser University.

I work with authors who are self-publishing or preparing to submit their manuscript to a publisher or an agent. I am also a freelance copy editor for McGill-Queen’s University Press and the University of Toronto Press. I have a Certificate in Publishing (Grade A) from Ryerson University.

My special strengths include assessing your editorial needs, identifying structural problems and suggesting ways to fix them, line editing that preserves your unique voice, sensitive copy editing for consistency and correctness, and communicating with empathy and respect.
