Writing, Editing, Ghostwriting

  • Books
  • Web content
  • Academic materials (including dissertation editing)

What my clients are saying:

"I have had the pleasure of working with Elizabeth on three editing projects. In each case, I found Elizabeth to be hard-working, punctual, thoughtful, and generous. Elizabeth is such a talented writer, and she brings all of this talent to bear on her editing work as well. She breathes life into texts, adding colour and texture that takes stories from good to enthralling. Elizabeth has also been an amazing support for authors, both professionally and personally, as they do the hard work of turning their ideas into texts. I am always excited for the opportunity to work with Elizabeth and know with certainty that anything I give her will come back better – in ways I didn't even imagine! Thank you, Elizabeth, for your reliability, your support, and your creativity. You're a lifesaver!"

-Candida Hadley, editor

“Elizabeth Peirce has been of inestimable value to me over the years, both as a researcher, an editor and as a proof-reader. I could not have finished Black Loyalists without her help; her knowledge of eighteenth-century terminology, for example, was tremendously useful, as well as being a skill unusual in this day and age. She is well-read, responsible, and fast while being accurate. I rely on her expertise, and I trust her judgement.”

-Dr. Ruth Holmes Whitehead, Order of Nova Scotia, author of Black Loyalists

“I have had the pleasure of working with Elizabeth for both my novels. Their success is due in no small part to her keen eye as an editor and honest appraisal of content. She completes her work in a timely fashion and I have always found her to be very professional. As both an author and an editor, she is uniquely qualified to bring out the best in each cherished manuscript.”

-Kathy Chisholm, author of Urban Tigers.

“Doing my thesis in Canada was only possible with the support of Elizabeth Peirce, who helped walk me through the mysteries of the English language and the structure of academic writing (as English is not my first language). Elizabeth helped me from the first draft to the end of my thesis. She always understood my needs and went beyond, anticipating the changes that should be made. With her professionalism, punctuality, and competence, I could finish my thesis on time. I strongly recommend Elizabeth's services.”

-Marcia Dos Santos, Master of Arts in Education candidate

“No detail is too small for Elizabeth’s discerning eye – she doesn’t miss a thing when she’s editing and proofreading!”

-Gina Brown, author of Lucy McGee’s Moment of Truth

"I’ve used Elizabeth’s copyediting services for the second edition of my guidebook How To Find and Win Scholarships in Canada and I found her very knowledgeable and helpful with a quick turnaround time. Wish I’d hired her earlier, before I printed the first copies!"

-Janet MacDonald, scholarship coach and owner/operator of mycampusGPS
