Are you a  writer who believes in the power of words—and who wants your work to be its best before you share it with the world ?

I’m Robin Larin (it’s French!), and I’m here to help.

Literature and language have been my passion since childhood (I still own much of my childhood library!), and I enjoy helping others with their fiction writing perhaps even more than writing my own. Years of teaching and experience with fiction and non-fiction have honed my instincts for writing that reaches the heart and mind of the reader—writing that is clear, powerful, and beautiful.

Your writing, made its best self with my help.

A bit about me

The first book I remember reading on my own was Hop on Pop by Dr. Seuss—and I was hooked. The teachers at my tiny school in the Laurentians read aloud wonderful children’s fiction and poetry every day, instilling in me a lifelong love of language and literature. By the time I finally left university, I was living in Ontario and had a BA in English Literature and Liberal Arts, an MA in English, another MA in Creative Writing, most of a PhD in English and Literary Theory (ABD), and the first of my four sons {whew!}.

Over the years, I’ve home educated my own children and others’, published a little fiction, and taught literature and writing at colleges and universities. I completed Simon Fraser University’s online Editing Certificate to polish my professional credentials, and I pursue continuing professional development because I’ll always be a student at heart.  As a member of Editors Canada, I serve on the student relations committee, as co-chair of my local “twig,” and as writer of our featured volunteer profiles.  My four feline Editorial Assistants lend helping paws and remind me to take occasional editing breaks 😉

So I understand what it’s like to be passionate about words and writing…

…and about the need to connect with others by communicating the truths we believe in.

At Robin Editorial, your passion becomes mine too.
