Joining the Team & Building Community

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of discovering The Editing Company—a short walk from the College subway station—and eventually of joining the team as the Website & Social Media Coordinator.

Having had the privilege of working with many talented writers and editors in Toronto, I know how important a sense of community is. Since August of 2011 I have been working to extend The Editing Company’s presence within the vibrant literary and publishing community.
Just Your Friendly Neighbourhood Editing Company
One of my first assignments at TEC was to build a comprehensive database of Canadian publishers, journals, and associations. While doing so, I was struck by the atmosphere of community TEC has built in-house. The office has a distinct sense of commitment to sharing challenges as well as decision-making.
What motivates the editors at TEC is a shared love for the written word. I see my job as helping to connect TEC editors with writers of all genres who together can build long-term relationships based on communication and trust.
