I'm Jackie Dulson, a full-time professional editor who would love to work on your next project. I work with educational resources and journals.
As well as formal editorial training, I have a PhD in Biology and worked as a researcher. My business is therefore focused on science, math, and medicine.
A trusted colleague
I have worked on over 50 titles via repeat business with clients such as Nelson Education, Pearson Education, Scholastic, and McGraw-Hill Ryerson. I am on the List of Qualified Suppliers for substantive and copy editing for Open School BC and have Reliability Status from the CISD.
I can help with any of the editing services below, as well as cold-reading and writing. I primarily do developmental editing. As an independent editor, you'll always work directly with me.
Developmental Editing: helping bring your work from an outline or first draft to a submission-ready document or final pages.
Copy-editing: improving sentence structure, grammar, and word usage; correcting spelling errors;. ensuring consistency and accuracy in tables, graphs, illustrations, formulas, or equations; checking references for accuracy, completeness, and style.
Proof-reading: checking for errors in designed pages against the last edit.
Cold reading: giving a final read-through to look for errors, without comparing to prior edits.
Writing: creating content, from an entire curriculum unit to a new activity, as well as reworking existing writing. I do not write or rewrite student work.
As each project is unique, quotes are provided only after I have seen a substantial sample of your manuscript and discussed your needs. We will agree on budget, schedule, and specific services to be provided before work begins.
If you think we'd make a good team, please get in touch! I will be happy to discuss any concerns.
