Alison Jacques

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

I am a full-time freelance copy editor and book indexer specializing in scholarly and nonfiction trade books. My areas of expertise include history, biography/memoir, media and cultural studies, gender and sexuality, and Canadian culture; however, I have also worked on books about bees, business, hiking, medicine, and Latin American literature.

I have an Honours BA in Communication (with a Criminology minor) from Simon Fraser University, an MA in Media Studies from the University of Western Ontario, and a PhD in Communication Studies from McGill University. I am a member of the Editors' Association of Canada and the Indexing Society of Canada.

Originally from Summerland, BC, I have lived in Vancouver, Montreal, Taipei, London, ON. I now live in Victoria, BC, with no plans to move again. Ever.
