Natalia Iwanek is a Toronto-based freelance copy editor, proofreader, and writer.  With a passion for literature and languages, this self-proclaimed bookworm, devours and collects books at, what some would call, an alarming pace. 

Originally hailing from Poland, with Ukrainian ancestry, Natalia was raised in Toronto and has lived in Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia, Guatemala, and Argentina.

She has completed Simon Fraser University’s Editing Certificate Program and has attended Ste. Anne’s University, York University, and Athabasca University as well.

She is hard-working and detail-oriented.  Completing projects in an efficient and timely manner is her highest priority.

Her work experience ranges from agricultural import catalogues to non-fiction books.

Although all types of projects are welcome, Natalia excels in the humanities, including history, sociology, and politics.

Additionally, Natalia is a native speaker of English and Ukrainian, with intermediate Spanish skills, and beginner skills in Polish and French.
