I'm the editor at Under the Stairs Editorial

I've been editing for 15 years and I'm continually amazed that I get to do my favourite thing — read — as my job.
It is a privilege to work with writers to help their words shine.



"Working with Carlie has made me a better writer and creative.
Carlie understands and respects the writer’s style and uniqueness, and she nurtures that so beautifully in her editing. No matter the project I am working on — masterclass or manuscript — none of my work goes out into the world until it has passed through Carlie’s hands. I trust her implicitly with my words and not only does she make me a better writer professionally, on a personal level, simply put, I just adore working with her."

Samantha Wills, writer + creative director
