About Me

photo-me1.jpgI’m Abdullah, a freelance writer and editor. As an editor, I specialize in structural, stylistic, and copy editing, with some experience in manuscript evaluation, and I’ve worked with fiction, creative non-fiction, academic, and journalistic writing. As a writer, I have experience as both a journalist and copywriter, and my writings span many fields, including politics, music and the arts, entertainment, and culture.

I have a B.A. in Journalism from Concordia University (Montreal, Canada), as well as a Postgraduate Certificate in Publishing from Ryerson University (Toronto, Canada), where I graduated with a 3.9 GPA. I have also worked as an Editorial Intern with Penguin Canada and have more than ten years of experience in the editorial field.

Given my strong background as a writer, I have been on both sides of the author–editor relationship. As such, my clients can expect that I always respect their work, and that I remain accessible throughout the editing process to ensure their satisfaction. I also provide free sample edits for long manuscripts to ensure that my clients get the service that matches their needs.
