About Cadence

Cadence Mandybura-3_med_edited.jpg

I’ve long been enchanted by the power of words. ​While my career has taken me across industries—from the private sector to a newspaper in Chennai, India, to arts organizations and public service—I’ve never veered far from my compulsion to tell stories and fix apostrophes. 

As a contract editor for FriesenPress, my editing skills have been vetted through a stringent examination based on Editors Canada guidelines, meeting internationally recognized standards that define the level of performance expected of a professional editor.


I've honed my storytelling skills as a student and apprentice in the Writer's Studio at Simon Fraser University, as the associate producer for the fiction anthology podcast The Truth, and as a first reader for Flash Fiction Online


I am grateful to live in Victoria, BC, on the land of the lək̓ʷəŋən People, known today as the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations.
