"Bruce made me realize the value of a good editor--someone who gently challenges you to bring your writing to life, who communicates regularly and updates you without you needing to ask; and who can write like the author they are editing."

The right words inspire thought or incite action, while the wrong ones come up flat and squash interest. As managing director and sole editorial contractor of Altus Editing International Ltd., I deliver high-quality writing and editing services to people and businesses who value excellence.

Service Description

Contact me for a full list of editorial and literary services. Here is a brief list:


Ghostwriter, Developmental Editor, Substantive Editor, Copy Editor, Proofreader:

It is not just grammatical robustness but also a faithfulness to their writer's unique voice that any good editor must work toward.

I have ghostwritten articles, blog posts, and business/health/self-help books. Editing full-length technical theses of both Masters' and Doctorate levels is something in which I have a great amount of experience, as well.

As the former editor for a quarterly magazine and also a respected literary journal, I nudged intelligent authors a few steps closer to their best literary selves.

I have worked as developmental editor, substantive editor, copy editor or proofreader to several now-published authors. I have helped publishing companies decide what to publish and what to throw back into the "slush pile", and I bring this real-world work experience to every contract.



Web Copy, Landing Pages, Copywriting:

I have extensive experience in copywriting for a large list of clients through two major Canadian marketing agencies. There, I broke new ground creating compelling web copy that helped websites clearly stand out above the rest.
