Thanks for visiting. I’m a writer and editor. My current and recent projects are listed below, and you can select a menu option for more. I volunteer for a community theatre and other organizations, maintain the web site for the poetry group Open Heart Forgery, and I am the vice-president of the Romance Writers of Atlantic Canada.
I’ve lived in various places in British Columbia and Ontario, and reside in Nova Scotia. I love Library Thing and Facebook, I’m on goodreads, and have a few videos on YouTube. Sometimes I tweet, @trcovell, and I’m also on Instagram, tim.covell.
I blog on various subjects including writing, editing, film classification, and using WordPress.
Sign up for my occasional newsletter to receive announcements about new blog posts and other updates.
Contact me with any questions or comments. Please note I am unable to accept any new editing work. I’ll update this once I can accept new work. June 2020
