Hi there!Maria Hypponen

Thanks for stopping by. I am Maria Hypponen, an indexer, editor, and writer with more than 15 years of experience serving Canadian and American authors, publishers, and organizations.

Professional experience

As a freelance back-of-the-book indexer, I write accurate, elegant, and thoughtful indexes for books on a range of topics.

As an editor, I help clients refine their written communications so they are clear, consistent, and error-free.

As a writer and communications consultant, I write and develop communications materials to help my clients get the right messages out to their audiences.

I also pursue my own creative writing and support other writers. I have published several short stories and essays, and have a number of longer works in progress. I am a member of the Restless Writers, and can be found blogging here: restlesswriters.ca.

I am a member of:

  • Indexing Society of Canada (ISC)
