2021 President’s Award for Volunteer Service

Nicola Aquino

Nicola Aquino has been a member of Editors Canada since 2018 and is active in the Editors Atlantic (formerly Editors Nova Scotia) twig. She runs her own freelance business, Spit & Polish Editing, and co-moderates The Editors’ Vine online meetings. (The Editors’ Vine was an initiative introduced in 2020 by Editors Canada to connect members who face barriers in attending twig or branch meetings. Two meetings with the same theme are held each month on the first Thursday and the following Saturday via Zoom. Contact vine@editors.ca for details.)

Nicola primarily works with indie self-publishing authors of fiction (mostly fantasy and science fiction), but she also does PA work for one client and recently started editing boxed text for dScryb, a Canadian start-up.
