About Heather

Heather MartinAs a freelancer, I’ve edited trade fiction, manga, marketing copy, catalogues, blog content, scholarly monographs, graduate theses, policy reports, and higher-education textbooks. I also have more than five years of in-house editorial experience working for two of Canada’s largest publishers. At Nelson Education, I helped create a wide variety of print and digital educational resources, and at Harlequin Books, I proofread and copyedited trade fiction and nonfiction books.

Before entering the world of publishing, I taught English usage and style to students at the University of Guelph’s Learning and Writing Centre, the University of Victoria’s Faculty of Business, and Queen’s University’s Faculty of Applied Science.

I hold a BA in honours English (University of Guelph) and an MA in English language and literature (University of Victoria) as well as a post-graduate certificate in publishing (Ryerson University). I’ve been a member of Editors Canada since 2008, routinely attending professional development seminars to ensure I maintain and continue to improve my editorial skills.

In my spare time, I enjoy drawing, cooking, photography, blogging about words, and tromping about in the great outdoors.
