A good editor provides a service that is so much more than simply pointing out typos or grammatical errors. I want to help you take your writing to the next level, to assist you in crafting professional, well-written content, and to make you sound like the best possible version of you!

No matter the project, I'm happy to help you, and will give your writing my full attention. I can polish and refine your writing to give it that extra edge, whether for the workplace, classroom, or publishing industry. Let me help you put your best foot forward.


What service do you need?

Projects I've Worked On

In the years I've spent working with words, I've been fortunate enough to work on a wide variety of projects. In the realm of books, I've worked on many fiction titles, including romance (through my work as a proofreader for Harlequin) and YA genres, and I've worked on a variety of nonfiction titles as well, in the genres of memoir, motivational & self-help, and sports history. I have over six years' experience working with academic texts, from academic journal articles to essays, dissertations, and papers. I also have experience working with business documents, including handbooks, training modules & manuals, resource guides, & annual reports.

Hi there! I’m Lesley-Anne Longo. I’ve been a lover of words (and a voracious reader) my entire life, and it was a natural step for me to develop that love into a career as an editor.  

After graduating from York University with an Honours Double Major in Professional Writing & Communications Studies, I opted to continue to further my editing knowledge through Centennial College’s Book & Magazine Publishing program, from which I graduated with High Honours.

I’ve worked in many areas of the publishing industry, including working with a variety of trade titles, from Young Adult fiction to sports history, at esteemed Canadian indie publisher ECW Press. I also have experience working with a variety of nonfiction projects, including scholarly journal articles, business reports and documents, self-published memoirs, creative nonfiction, and company handbooks.  I’ve worked on a number of titles in the romance genre as well through my work as a freelance proofreader with Harlequin. I feel lucky to have the opportunities to work on such varied and diverse titles!

No matter the project, I am always happy to help you craft and hone your writing so you can put your best self forward.

“Lesley-Anne Longo is amazing. I hired her to help me create my first ever E-Book. I had no idea what I was doing and she helped me every step of the way. She is professional, patient, polite, friendly and great at her job. She has amazing time management skills and was able to help me complete my book months before my deadline. If I ever needed something changed she did it right away and made sure that every stage, I was happy with how things were looking. If you need help with your book I highly recommend reaching out to Lesley-Anne.”
