Karina Sinclair has been a member of Editors Hamilton-Halton and a hardworking volunteer since June 2017. After devoting more than 20 years to a career in television (she was the lead script-writer and producer for an extreme weather documentary series that aired on National Geographic and other networks), she founded Line By Line Studio and began her freelance career as a writer, editor, photographer and video producer.
In her short time as a member of Editors Canada, Karina has contributed significantly to the organization. Members may be familiar with her recent work, which includes the popular proofreading video and the promotional video for the third edition of Editing Canadian English.
Karina’s volunteer work goes even further than videos. She is co-coordinator of Editors Hamilton-Halton and also produces the monthly twig newsletter. Karina was also a proofreader for Active Voice and is now a member of the national publications committee.
According to Karina, Editors Canada has created a supportive community for its members. Her commitment to volunteering is one way of contributing. “By getting involved in various volunteer roles, I’m able to brainstorm, learn and laugh with other editors. I feel like I’m part of a team, like I’ve found my tribe.”
The featured volunteer recognizes the contributions of our dedicated people who keep Editors Canada going. Volunteers are the backbone of the association, and we are grateful for the many members and affiliates who answer the call when help is needed.
