Elizabeth Macfie and Moira White team up to share their combined copy editing expertise on taking your skills to the next level at Copy Editing II.
Elizabeth has been a freelance proofreader and editor since 1997. After working as a coordinator of provincial park visitor services and then as a manager of adult education, she has chosen a career clarifying written communication. Her clients include federal government departments and agencies, book publishers, research organizations, and a university publications service. Elizabeth is an EAC-certified proofreader, copy editor and stylistic editor, a past chair of the Editors’ Association of Canada’s National Capital Region branch, and past president of the Indexing Society of Canada.
Moira entered the work world as a social worker and later moved into social policy. In both professions, she found that her organizational skills, attention to detail, and love of words were pointing her in a new direction—the world of editing. Currently a freelance editor, writer, and trainer with both public and private sector clients, she has decades of experience editing print and electronic publications. Moira is a director of professional standards for, and a past president of, the Editors’ Association of Canada.
