Coryl Addy is a writer, freelance editor and designer, and multidisciplinary artist based in the National Capital Region of Ottawa, Ontario. She loves languages and conceptual themes. She can be found in the wild listening to music or nearly missing the bus because she’s reading a book. Her priority as a freelance editor is highlighting the writer’s voice while providing tips and education on technical craft. With a Bachelor of Arts in deep breath English Literature, Spanish Language, and Creative Writing, she has ample experience with critically evaluating literature, respecting non-English language, and workshopping creative works. She has been a member of Editors Canada since 2017 and seeks to improve her skills as a freelance editor through professional training and standards.
As a freelance editor, Coryl currently provides a range of editorial services, including book editing, audio transcription, desktop publishing, and book design. She also dabbles in front-end website design and content management system assistance. She is always interested in making new connections, but please see the posted availability for new projects. Her favourite clients to work with are self-publishing writers who need a final pass on their text, new writers looking for guidance on narrative craft, and other writers who would like to gain clear and encouraging feedback on their text. By far, her most popular service is line editing (copy & stylistic editing), where she focuses on the writer’s voice through sentence structure while proofreading for accurate grammar.

Stay safe during the pandemic. I am prioritizing my mental health and will not be available for projects with new clients.
Coryl also enjoys writing for herself! While she writes poetry, short fiction, and novels, she enjoys writing blog posts here about mental health, the writing craft, her personal life, and more. She loves discussion on these topics, so leave a comment and start a conversation!
