Professional Info

Hello! My name is Debbie Innes and I am a freelance copy editor and proofreader based in Toronto, Ontario, in Canada. I am a meticulous and conscientious editor who strives for the best experience for the reader. // I have more than 10 years’ experience as a writer and editor gained from my role as Communications Specialist at the Law Society of Ontario - the regulatory body that oversees Ontario's lawyers and paralegals. In that position, I wrote and edited content bound for both print and digital publications, including annual reports, government reports, magazines, website content, newsletters, and brochures. I worked collaboratively with senior executives, communications advisors, French translators and design teams to produce clean and error-free content on deadline. // My subject areas of expertise include: adoption – transracial (I am an adoptee.); the arts – specifically, film, musical theatre and dance; intersectional feminism; LGBTQ2S+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, two-spirited); Ontario’s legal profession (lawyer, paralegal); race, class and gender, and Women’s Studies.
