Carolyn Richardson received her doctorate in philosophy from the University of Toronto. Even as an undergraduate, she was an inadvertent editor, copyediting her classmates’ papers and, later, her professor’s translation of Heidegger’s Being and Time. Prior to becoming a freelance editor and writer, Dr. Richardson was for five years a visiting assistant professor and Andrew W. Mellon postdoctoral teaching fellow at the College of the Holy Cross. Dr. Richardson continues to teach, most recently as an instructor for the Real English Academy of Language (R.E.A.L.), where she works with ESL high school students on advanced reading and writing skills.
Originally from Canada, Dr. Richardson lives in central Massachusetts. She has published essays and poetry in academic and literary journals. Some of her work is available here.
