Beth McAuley, Owner & Senior Editor / Academic & Non-Fiction Editor / Business Editor
Beth completed her master's degree in history at the University of Toronto in the 1980s, and shortly afterwards began her editing career. She crafted her editorial skills through professional courses at Ryerson University and the Editors' Association of Canada. Under the tutelage of academic authors and researchers, she learned the precise art of scholarly editing. She has edited for academic, trade, and educational publishers, and worked as an in-house managing editor. In 1997, she launched the successful Women's Issues Publishing Program with Sumach Press. Over the course of 12 years, she acquired, edited, and published 25 titles in the series. Her entrepreneurial networking efforts have resulted in strong relationships with several businesses, both in Toronto and abroad, for whom she has edited and proofread business reports, training modules, and eBooks.
Mary Ann Mazey, Business Editor & eNewsletter Editor
Mary Ann has a master’s degree in English from Wilfrid Laurier University, but it was her love of copy editing that led her to Centennial College’s Book and Magazine Publishing program. Since completing her internship in the copy department of Canadian Living magazine, Mary Ann has worked as a web content editor and as a copy editor of both print and online content for magazines and businesses. Her business editing experience ranges from advertorial articles for small service companies to annual reports for large finance companies. In her free time, when she’s not strolling around Toronto snapping photos of professionally printed and terribly misspelled signs, Mary Ann is often cooking up a storm or furrowing her brow over a particularly challenging Sudoku puzzle.
Avery Peters, Academic & Non-Fiction Editor
Avery Peters has a diverse educational background, which includes a Certificate in Sales and Marketing from Niagara College and a BA in Religious Studies and Women’s Studies from the University of Alberta. She also worked for two years as a volunteer and three years as an assistant manager at Ten Thousand Villages, where she shared the stories of artisans with customers and volunteers. Her love of stories and passion for helping people tell them led her to complete Ryerson’s Publishing Program. She also works as a freelance editor with small businesses, publishers, and non-profit organizations. In her free time she enjoys hiking and running with her dog, cooking, reading, knitting, and sewing.
Sara Rozenberg, Academic & Non-Fiction Editor
After completing undergraduate studies in English and World Literatures, Sara went on to receive her master’s degree through the Women and Gender Studies Institute at the University of Toronto. She completed Ryerson University’s copy editing course before building experience as a freelance writer and editor. Since then, she’s worked in the not-for-profit sector, in commercial settings, with independent and emerging writers, and with arts organizations. She is passionate about the many emerging arts practices and publishing communities to have grown out of this city, and has worked closely with organizations such as the Toronto Women’s Bookstore and Fuse Magazine.
David Ward, eBook Editor & Production Editor
David Ward is a digital publishing professional with over a decade of experience in book production in all formats. He has worked in trade publishing (five years at Random House for McClelland & Stewart / Tundra), educational publishing (five years at Harcourt Canada), and corporate publishing. David is well versed in the production of all manner of publications and electronic formats, including both simple and complex eBooks.
Max Baru, Website & Social Media Co-ordinator
Max Baru completed his applied degree in computer programming & analysis at George Brown College in 2009. Since then he has worked within the publishing industry writing, editing, and recovering whole offices from technological bewilderment. He now studies literature and linguistics at York University, while building TEC's client database and developing the Company's newsletter and social media networks. Max has recently become TEC's photo researcher, applying his technological and research skills to shaping a slide show for one of our clients. In doing so, he identified over 40 images to capture 200 years of the Canadian labour movement.
In addition to our in-house team, The Editing Company keeps in touch with a network of freelance editors who can work with clients independently or as part of a project.
