a little about me

kelsiKelsi Morris works in the publishing industry, focusing on genre fiction and graphic novels. She graduated from the University of Guelph with a degree in English and Philosophy, and used it to turn her life-long love of speculative fiction into a career of editing books, starting at ChiZine Publications, where she also helped create and launch ChiGraphic, CZP’s graphic novel imprint. She actually enjoys reading slush, and has done so for ChiZine, The Friends of the Merril contest, and Ellen Datlow’s Fearful Symmetries anthology. She is the co-editor of two upcoming anthologies of Canadian speculative fiction, Those Who Make Us: Canadian Creatures, Myths, and Monsters (Exile Editions, 2016), and Over The Rainbow: A Fairy Tale Anthology (Exile Editions, 2017). Kelsi was also a contributing author for the Canadian Videogame Award-nominated Lights Out, Please

Outside of books, she finds happiness in black coffee, red wine, and dragons.

my services


substantive editing

This is the whole shebang. I work in detail with your entire manuscript to edit content, clarity, structure, plotting, pacing, consistency, and tone to make it the best manuscript possible.


stylistic or line editing

This is a full, line-by-line review of your manuscript. I provide comments and edits to clarify meaning, smooth your syntax, eliminate jargon and repetition, eliminate jargon and repetition, and generally polish the language of your writing.


copy editing

I go through your manuscript with a digital red pen and correct the mechanics of grammar, punctuation, spelling, style guide, language preference, formatting, and eliminate errors and inconsistencies.



This if the final stage of your manuscript. I check your typeset pages, or proofs, for line breaks, page breaks, errors in typesetting, formatting, page numbers, headers, and layout to ensure it looks beautiful on the page.

I work on a flat rate or hourly rate depending on the type of editing needed, complexity of the project, and deadlines.     contact me
