As a book and magazine editor, Cori knows what it takes to craft a compelling story.
As an editor for Elle Canada, She Writes Press and editor of her own best-selling anthology, Cori has helped hundreds of authors find their voice and their narrative, elevating their stories into words that leave the reader hungry for more.
She was the founder of the popular online writing centre, The Momoir Project. Through that international community of mothers, she edited and published the raw, honest and deeply personal stories of her students on the site’s community blog. Her students have since been published in Today’s Parent, The Globe and Mail, The Walrus, and many more.
“I found my cheerleader in Cori Howard. When it was necessary to cut words, like a skilled physician, she would say so and explain why. When I was encouraged to dig deeper, she showed me how. There are more than a few words in my memoir that are Cori’s. But she allowed me to take those words and sew them into the fabric of my own story in a way that made them mine. Together we found our way to the end and made a book I am so very proud to have brought into the world.”
Author of Girl on Bike: A Mountain Bike, A Mid-Life Adventure and Men in Shorts
“Cori is responsive, creative, and holds her clients with such grace and ease that it makes it easy for me to trust that any She Writes Press author I send her way will have an amazing coaching/editorial experience. She has an eye for the big picture and quality, all the while maintaining what’s valuable to the writers she works with. I feel that I’ve found a jewel with Cori.”

“The Momoir Project was my re-introduction to the world of writing; it was a fire lit. I had forgotten the power of storytelling, of bonding through shared experience. Cori led our group with expertise and savvy; she led us deeper into our experience to find the real story. She became my mentor in writing, helped me find my voice and provided a space to first publish. She encouraged and supported me, giving me the confidence in myself to continue on. I have gone on to publish several stories and continue to hone the craft; all because I found a great mentor to lead me down the fork in the road.”
