Since 2006, I've edited novels, memoirs, short stories, poetry, doctoral dissertations, blog articles, CVs, and other works. My own fiction, poetry and non-fiction have been published in print and online, and I've presented at conferences in Canada and the US. I hold a Professional Writing diploma from Memorial University and interned at Flanker Press as an editorial assistant. In addition to editing, I tutored writing at the university level for five years. I hold a Master of Arts in Anthropology from Simon Fraser University and have nearly completed a PhD at York University.
“Marion is a fantastic editor. I sent Marion my first piece of writing, feeling a lot of uncertainty and embarrassment; I did not feel my writing was even worth being edited. Nonetheless, Marion gave me invaluable advice to set me up for future success and give me confidence in my story. Her suggestions, revisions and even the hard truths were all there to benefit me and I really appreciate all her amazing work. Also, she is a very pleasant person to talk to!”
"Marion Lougheed is an amazing editor! She surpassed all my expectations and I was blown away with her extremely detailed edits. She is thorough, professional and provides great communication during the whole process. Her keen eye and attention to detail has helped improve my manuscript immensely. She polished my grammar, pointed out plot inconsistencies, made suggestions to improve elements of my characters and overall brought my manuscript to the next level. I will be using Marion again for all my future editing needs and highly recommend her work!"
"Excellent work by Marion - well beyond our expectations. We look forward to working with her again."
