Shelley Egan

Greetings! My name is Shelley, and I’m a copy editor, developmental editor, and proofreader. I worked as a Hansard editor from 2008 to 2015 and started my own business in 2016. My first job was editing a new magazine, but I didn’t enjoy it and decided to focus on editing fiction. So far, I’ve worked with indie authors and two small Canadian publishers. I also teach a workshop on fixing common writing errors through the continuing education department of a nearby university.

My goal is to find out how to get work from fiction publishers, especially romance publishers. My sense is that many editors are out there looking, so it would be good to know how to make my application stand out.

I’m looking forward to hearing what has worked well for others and to learning a lot in this course!
