Kristy Lynn is a freelance editor who offers copy editing, proofreading, and indexing services.
I have been copy editing on a freelance basis since 2008. Some of my past work includes copy editing students’ papers, especially – but not exclusively – in the subjects of English Literature, the Social Sciences, and Nursing. I was also responsible for copy editing and proofreading a monthly newsletter for a condominium corporation from 2011 to 2013.
I have recently completed the Publishing Certificate program through the Chang School of Continuing Education at Ryerson University. I excelled in my courses, which included Grammar, Copy Editing, Stylistic Editing, Proofreading, Indexing, and Production.
Currently, I also work at the University of Toronto Press for the XML-Workflow group, P-Shift. I am in charge of project review and coordination; additionally, I prepare manuscripts for copy editing and typesetting, manage production for client books, and create EPUBs.
Before gaining my full-time position, I was a Production/Editorial Intern at UTP Journals. During my internship, I gained plenty of copy editing experience, working on various journals including Physiotherapy Canada, the Journal of Veterinary Medical Education, Canadian Review of American Studies, and University of Toronto Quarterly, as well as daily blog posts. I also proofread a great deal of articles and full issues of journals, including material published in the Journal of Veterinary Medical Education, the Canadian Review of American Studies, the Canadian Journal of Criminology and Criminal Justice, and the Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation.
