I provide writing, editorial and research services for businesses, organizations and individuals. I specialize in editing academic work in the social sciences and providing advice on women's fiction and literary nonfiction.
I hold an MSc and PhD in the natural and social sciences. My PhD dissertation was nominated for the Governor General's Gold Medal for graduate research and I have published numerous academic articles. I have also published and edited literary work, including novels, short fiction and essays.
In 2013, I founded Understorey, an online magazine of literary writing and visual art dedicated to stories of women's lives. In 2018, I joined the staff of Atlantis: Critical Studies in Gender, Culture and Social Justice as Managing Editor.
With employment experience in universities, non-profit organizations, publishing houses, magazines and government departments, including the Office of the Auditor General of Canada, I have the skill to write to exacting standards and for diverse clients, readers and venues.
“Katherine has a keen editing eye and brings clarity to complex concepts. I am an older student completing a doctoral dissertation and with Katherine’s assistance I have felt encouraged. She offers direct suggestions and comments that I have found extremely beneficial. I would highly recommend her!”
