Jennifer Dinsmore

Freelance Editor & Certified Proofreader


I’m so glad you’re here! Are you ready to take your writing to new heights?

If so, please see my services page and we can jump right in! If not, no worries. Let’s get to know each other first, shall we?

Reading and writing have been my lifelong passions, and I spent my childhood devouring, creating, and acting out stories. When teachers would call for peer-editing I was that annoying classmate who actually returned your paper with corrections, so it was only natural to set my sights on the world of publishing.

After earning an HBA in English Language & Literature from Trent University I got my feet wet as an editorial assistant for an academic publisher, and later pursued a certificate in Creative Book Publishing from Humber College. But after almost a decade in the industry I began to crave more freedom for my creativity, and in the summer of 2015 decided to branch out into freelance editing.

Since then, I have worked for a wide variety of publishers, independent authors, and organizations. Clients love my professional, friendly service, and I have quickly developed a reputation as a reliable and self-directed individual with a sharp eye for detail.

After all, your words are important and you:

  • want someone who knows the business inside and out, someone who can deliver projects on time and within budget.
  • want someone who has the same passion for writing as you do.
  • want someone who knows the importance of making the right impression online.

This is why I’ve made it my mission to offer a comprehensive range of services designed to encourage and support, no matter the project. And as a member of Editors Canada—as well as being a certified proofreader—you can trust you are hiring the best!

As another bonus, over the past few years I’ve rediscovered my own love of writing fiction. I am currently enrolled in Giller-nominated Sarah Selecky’s spectacular creative writing course, Story is a State of Mind, strengthening my command of plot, pacing, characterization, and everything in between. (Bonus: Get a free short story evaluation when you enroll using the link above!)

I love connecting with fellow readers, writers, and publishing nerds, so drop me a line on social media as well!
