Cassandra Filice, Write to the End

Cassandra f

I spent nine unforgettable years teaching high school English at an international school before shifting focus exclusively to Write to the End. The best part of my job is connecting and constantly learning.

I’ve worked with not-for-profits creating web content, national organizations ghost writing books for clients, and individuals working on a variety of materials, from dissertations to memoirs.

I’m thrilled to work with best-selling authors from Simon and Schuster to offer writing and editing retreats on the Bonavista Peninsula.

I’m a member of the Professional Writers’ Association of Canada, the Writers’ Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the Editors’ Association of Canada. I’ve completed courses on substantive editing, copy editing, plain language, and stylistic editing.

Available for: Manuscript evaluations, Editing (all levels), Writing (various mediums and content), Project management

Areas of interest: Fiction, Poetry, Art, History, Mental Health, Education, Business Development, Food and Travel

Sandy Newton


Sandy Newton 2Sandy has been providing editing and writing services to a broad range of clients in Newfoundland and Labrador and beyond since the 1990s. Projects she has contributed to include museum exhibits, art publications, non-fiction books, government reports, print promotions, advocacy materials, corporate communications, and web sites. She is happy performing tasks as focused as copy-editing or as broad as serving as managing editor of a publication. She particularly enjoys helping clients make the words and graphics/imagery of their messages work together to greatest effect.

Sandy was honoured to receive Editors Canada’s Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence (2012) for her work on Where’s the Catch: The Fish We Harvest from the NW Atlantic (by Wade Kearley, Boulder Publications). Five additional non-fiction books she edited have won provincial or regional awards and she is the co-author (with Ian Warkentin) and editor of Birds of Newfoundland (published 2010).

Mark Butt, Ironclad Writing

img_0954Mark is an editor, writer, streamer, and aspiring game designer. He completed the editing certificate program at Simon Fraser University in 2020, capping off a career shift after almost a decade working as a lawyer in St. John’s. Working with words is his true calling, and drafting legal briefs and research memoranda just wasn’t enough for him.

Before switching over to editing, Mark received a Bachelor of Arts from Memorial University (majoring in English) in 2006, and a Bachelor of Laws from the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University in 2010.

In 2019, Mark launched Ironclad Writing, an editing and content writing service with a special focus on tabletop games—board games, role-playing games, and the like. He will edit anything he can get his hands on, though.

Mark is a co-coordinator of the Newfoundland and Labrador twig of Editors Canada (alongside the patient Sandy Newton) and spends his spare time working on games, thinking about games, and, naturally, playing games.
