Frances Peck is a writer and Certified Professional Editor (Hon.) who works on material ranging from manuals and websites to technical documents and reports. She has taught at the University of Ottawa, Douglas College and Simon Fraser University. The former Chelsea resident and long-time EAC member is now based in Vancouver and travels the land giving workshops and presentations on language. She is a partner with West Coast Editorial Associates and on Twitter refers to herself as an “east coaster on the west coast.”
Frances co-authored the popular HyperGrammar website and wrote Peck’s English Pointers, a free e-book published by the Translation Bureau. Pointers has educated and entertained language buffs with lively articles and quizzes spanning grammar, punctuation, mechanics, usage and clarity. Frances brings this light-hearted look at the rules of the English language to her two fall seminars. She is always up for a challenge and encourages seminar participants to bring along any difficult grammar examples they’ve encountered in their work.
