Handing your work  over to a contractor can be a nerve-wracking experience.

I get that – and I can help.

I have many years of experience as both a writer and an editor, and have been working as an independent contractor in both fields since 2008.


Whether you need a substantive edit (where we do a lot of rearranging, fact-checking, and rewriting), a second pair of eyes to double-check your website, or just a quick scan of your PowerPoint slides to make sure all is in order, I will work with you to make the editing process as simple and pain-free as possible.

I work with established authors, academic / scholarly writers, and new, emerging, and indie / self-publishing authors, writing on every topic under the sun. No matter what shape your manuscript is in, or what subject you’re writing about, I’m happy to take a look and talk more with you about your needs and requirements – and your worst fears. (Believe me, I really get this!)

Not sure what kind of editing you need? Here’s a quick guide. 


Do you need a ghostwriter for your book or blog? Maybe you need someone to interview your publicity-shy CEO and write up her life story for your donor magazine. Or maybe your website could use an overhaul.

I’ve got a long, solid track record of telling stories that people want to hear – and bringing them back for more.


And if you want to learn more about how to work with an editor, here’s a little book I wrote, called How to Work with An Editor: A Guide for (Nervous) Clients. It’s free to download, and answers many of the questions you may have.

Meanwhile, have a look through my site and see if what I have to offer is right for you. If you think we’d work well together, or if you want to talk to me further about your requirements and my rates, drop me a line and I’ll happily answer your questions.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm regards,
Jennifer McIntyre
Toronto, Canada

Your words. Your voice. Your way.

    I’ve completed a screenplay, I would like to polish my scene descriptions, and be mentored in creative writing. But I’d like to pay by the hour. Is this possible? If so, how much per hour?


    • J.McIntyre says:

      Hi Dennis, I don’t do mentoring, but if you look on the Editors Canada website, you can search by that term and likely find someone who will do that for you. Best, Jennifer.

    Abbie Emmons recommended you. I’ve self-published three books, two non-fiction. One fiction. I have two fiction stories ready for editing. They are 59,180 words and 60,740 words. I prefer content editing, and always use Prowritingaid and Grammarly before sending my drafts. What price should I expect for polished manuscripts to submit to publishers? I no longer have time to self-publish and advertise and promote.

    • J.McIntyre says:

      Hi Mike, The price of an edit depends on the word count of the manuscript, the time frame (i.e., rush job or not) and other variables. If you’re interested, drop me an email and we’ll chat. Thanks!
