About me

Photograph of the site owner.Hello there! I am Marieke, a full-time editor specializing in copyediting academic manuscripts. I work on journal articles, book manuscripts, and PhD dissertations.

I work on other kinds of texts too, from websites to non-academic non-fiction to an actual card game, and I am also a stylistic and structural/developmental editor.

I am currently taking courses towards obtaining the Professional Editing Standards Certificate at Queen’s University, Canada.

I have a PhD in Political Science and a strong background in Arabic, urban studies,  geography, and the political economy of the Middle East. I obtained my MA from the American University of Beirut (AUB), Lebanon. You can find my resume here.

I am a member of Editors Canada, the Society for Proofreaders and Editors (SfEP), and SENSE, the Society for English-language professionals in The Netherlands. I am eligible to work in the EU and Canada (I am a permanent resident).
