Maggie Billard


I am a freelancer indexer, copy editor, and proofreader based in Toronto, Canada, but I’ve worked in the US and Germany as well. I have experience indexing scholarly texts and training documents, but am also interested in any kind of trade books, especially cookbooks and crafting books, textbooks, guide books etc. I am happy to edit and index, index and proofread—whatever you need! I love to collaborate or take the manuscript and run with it. My style is less flowery, more pragmatic. I got my indexing education during my Master of Library & Information Science at Simmons College and while completing coursework for the Publishing Certificate at Toronto Metropolitan University.
