About

Hello there!

My name is Margot, and I currently work as a publishing assistant at Penguin Random House Canada and as a freelance writer, copy editor, and proofreader.

 

In 2017 I received a doctorate in English literature from Trinity College Dublin for my thesis work which concentrated on fairy tales, American culture and feminist movements, and popular media. In the same year I assistant edited Wayward Sisters, a comics anthology of monstrous women.

I've written for The Hairpin, The Toast, the Western Folklore Society, TO Comix, Marvel Comics, and The Irish Journal of Gothic and Horror Studies.

My copy editing and/or proofreading clients have included Knopf/Random House Canada, Tundra Books, the Sinai Health Network, and undergraduate and graduate/postgraduate students in Canada, the United States, Ireland, and the UK, among others. I'm comfortable working with a range of styles, including Chicago Style, MLA, AP, and APA.

If you are interested in my writing or copy editing work, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
