Freelance Editor and Collaborator
Founder of Wise Owl Wordsmithing, Marianne Sprague truly enjoys a supportive and collaborative approach to her work with clients, tailoring her services to best meet the needs and goals of each client.
Building upon an extensive post-secondary experience – including a BA Business and Economics (2002) and a BA First Nations Studies (2008) from the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) and an MA Economics (2003) from McMaster University – and more than nine years of providing academic writing support to students at UNBC by way of coaching and essay/thesis editing, Marianne created Wise Owl to offer a variety of document-related services to a broader audience. Whether it’s helping a student with the academic writing process, supporting an entrepreneur writing a business plan, or editing a manuscript, Wise Owl services are personalized for each client and their project.
Marianne was also featured in a post for West Coast Editor in February 2020.
What my clients are saying…
“I can honestly say that the work put in by Marianne and her enduring support for my project brought it to fruition. My thesis started as a compilation of four different concepts and the Wise Owl herself guided me to the finished project, which I am so proud of. This was my first experience with an editor, but I would advise anyone with less than intimate knowledge of APA format to at least consult with Marianne, an APA guru in her own right. Marianne is personable, flexible, and open-minded to working with any and all writing concepts.”
“Thanks greatly to Marianne Sprague for a thorough and thoughtful editorial review of this completed work.”
“I found Wise Owl Wordsmithing comprehensive, efficient, and succinct. Marianne was quick to reply and got the job done on time. A small price to pay for a quality service.”
