About Me

My name is Emily Stewart and I'm a writer and editor.

I've always had a passion for writing and I love being a part of the process that brings ideas to fruition.

In 2015, I graduated with my Honours Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Ottawa. I then attended New York University's Summer Publishing Institute and enrolled in publishing courses at Ryerson University. Highlights of my education include participating in multiple creative writing workshops, pitching magazine and book imprint ideas to top New York publishing professionals, and being nominated for the Mary Shipton Award for Editorial Excellence in Book Editing.

While still completing my undergraduate degree, I began working on Ottawa Arts Review, uOttawa's English Language Literary Journal. After serving as Director of Submissions, I became Editor-in-Chief and led a team of volunteers in printing and launching three issues of the print journal.

Additionally, I have had the pleasure of holding several communications positions in the private and public sectors. In such positions, I have written everything from instruction manuals, to blog posts, to ad copy and press releases. These positions also provided me with the opportunity for professional training in web writing and accessibility.

Now, I am putting my knowledge and training to work as a freelance writer and editor. Interested in working together? Check out my services and get in touch!
