I'm always on the look-out for contractual editing work, so if you need an editor who is thorough, detail-oriented and works quickly, get in touch using the contact information below. I have over six years of editing experience reading over scripts, manuscripts, advertising copy, academic papers, dissertations and essays. Some of that work includes checking biographies and sources as well as preliminary fact-checking.
As I started my Creative Writing degree in 2012, I was already paying the bills looking over engineering masters and PhD students' essays and dissertations in both French and English, and discovered a natural aptitude for quality control, refining rhetoric and argumentation, and editing text for maximum clarity and precision. I completed my degree in Creative Writing from Concordia University in 2016, and have been working as a freelance editor since.
If you need a professional editor to look over your website copy, press releases, advertisement copy, resumes, cover letters, statements of intent, essays, dissertations, short prose fiction, long/chaptered prose fiction, screenplays, articles, blog posts, personal essays, lettering/dialogue for comic page panels, poetry, twine games, video games writing, and scripts (playwriting), please do not hesitate to contact me for an estimate of my rates or further inquiries.Contact For Rates or Inquiries
Gersande did an incredible job editing my personal statement and proved to me the value of a good editor. I'll definitely be asking Gersande to look over my writing in the future.

Gersande is a talented editor and writer with a remarkable critical mind and a keen eye not just for technical errors, but also word-flow and clarity. They’ve always provided me with excellent constructive feedback on my written work and I highly recommend working with them on all sorts of creative projects.

I'm currently going over @gersandelf's meticulous copy-edits on my dissertation—basically, editors are amazing. You should get yourself one.— Who, me? (@emciel) January 20, 2017
Dear World, if you are looking for an editor for your next project, I can strongly recommend Gersande La Flèche!!!
