Julia Caceres

I hold a BA (Hons.) from the University of British Columbia with a major in History and a minor in Creative Writing. I have taught creative writing classes in schools as the Writer in Residence for School District No. 8 in 2014 and as a contractor in more recent years. I was an intern at Mint Literary Agency in my home town of Nelson, B.C., from 2014-15. I currently reside in the Village of Slocan where I edit from home.

Growing up in the lush mountains of B.C.’s Southern Interior, I developed a deep love for the wild at a very young age. I spend my winters in the mountains and my summers on the lake or in the river. I recognize what a privilege it is to live, play, and work on the magnificent traditional territories of the Sinixt, Syilx, and Ktunaxa First Nations.

I am passionate about the power of human communication. I believe in the ability of language to change the world for the better and to bring us closer together. I truly love working with people and their writing projects. I see my job as an opportunity to amplify messages of hope and to give courage and inspiration to those working to present their vision to the world. I live to clarify, refine, and polish language.

I see every instance of communication as salient. I see every word choice as significant.

I look forward to meeting you and your project!
