    Hello! I’m Kaila (she/her). As a trained poetry and picture book editor, my goal is always to have my clients walk away more in love with their projects than they were before. Editing with care, respect, and open dialogue, I help writers feel confident in putting their work out into the world. I’ve had the pleasure of working with multiple indie authors, authors seeking traditional publishing, and writers simply wanting to polish their projects for personal use. Whether or not you plan on publishing, we’ll get your words to a level ready for print. For poetry, I offer edits on individual poems as well as collections with: - Developmental editing - Copy editing (including line editing) - Proofreading - Collection organization, where I help determine what poems should be included and in what order For picture books, I offer edits on stories for children aged 3-8 with: - Developmental editing (if a rhyming book, structure gets looked at here) - Copy editing (including line editing) - Proofreading I’m a member of Editors Canada and hold a B.A. in English from the University of Ottawa. For further education, see “Certifications” and “Other Experiences” below. Please note, I edit with Microsoft Word. I can’t wait to work with you!
