I’ve spent 25 years working on a wide variety of editing projects. These range from novels to government reports, from corporate brochures to personal memoirs, from business websites to magazine articles, from PhD dissertations to non-fiction books, and from organizational publications to blogs.
If you can write it, I can tidy it up.
My clients appreciate the fact that I'm prompt, responsive, and focused on meeting all their editing needs. I specialize in Plain Language, and my life’s work is making text more reader-friendly.
I’ve been a passionate fan of words, writing, and stories ever since my bookish childhood in England. In the decades since then, I’ve acquired degrees in English Literature and Journalism; and I’ve written several hundreds of articles for various Canadian magazines and newspapers.
When I’m not slaving over some problematic piece of copy, I’m usually to be found (depending on the season) swimming in the Ottawa River, kayaking on Meech Lake, cross-country skiing in the Gatineau Park, singing folk songs in pubs with other expat Brits—or just curled up with a good book or film.
I’m located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and I welcome English-language clients from all around the world.

“In a category of her own is Antonia Morton, who I affectionately call my personal word trainer. Antonia has read almost everything I’ve ever written professionally, buffing and polishing it before the world saw it.”

“I was highly impressed by Antonia’s ability to rewrite an impenetrable document. She untangled convoluted sentences, cut repetition, replaced long words with short ones, activated the passives, and made a difficult piece of text much easier to read.”
