Have you written something, but you’re not confident it’s the best it could be? Do you need someone who can help you polish your prose…or someone else’s?
Whether you’re looking for mentoring for a novel, editing of a completed book in preparation for self-publishing or submission to a publisher, or just want a knowledgeable pair of eyes to take a long hard look at a piece of writing before it hits the public eye on a website or in a brochure or newsletter, Edward Willett can help. His editing experience runs the gamut from an award-winning weekly newspaper (the Weyburn Review) to Freelance, the magazine of young people’s writing put out by the Saskatchewan Writers Guild, and from numerous small newsletters all the way up to the glossy Fine Lifestyles stable of magazines (Fine Lifestyles Regina, Fine Lifestyles Saskatoon, Fine Lifestyles Estevan/Weyburn, and more). As a freelance editor for FriesenPress, he’s worked on multiple books ranging from memoirs to fantasy epics.
In addition, Edward Willett served as writer-in-residence at the Regina Public Library in 2011-2012 and at the Saskatoon Public Library in 2019-2020, helping dozens of writers polish their prose, poetry, plays and non-fiction.
Services offered include structural editing, copyediting, proofreading, and, for fiction writers, mentoring and manuscript critiquing, with a special focus on speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy and horror) for both adults and young adults.
Rates and services are tailored to the client and the project, but are always reasonable and negotiable.
