Hi, I’m Amanda Lewis, a book editor based in Vancouver, Canada.
I work with clients to design their lives, starting with their body of work.
I am dedicated to mission-driven publishing, and believe that innovative storytelling plays a key role in social change.
I edit fiction and non-fiction in numerous categories, but specialize in memoir/biography, business, tech, activism, and “big ideas.”
Books I’ve worked on have become #1 national and international bestsellers, and won the Scotiabank Giller Prize, RBC Taylor Prize, Governor General’s Literary Award, BC National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction, Hilary Weston/Rogers Writers’ Trust Prize for Literary Non-Fiction, Banff Mountain Book Award for Adventure Travel, Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature, and Kobo Emerging Writer Prize. Learn more about me and the books I’ve worked on.
Formerly an editor at Penguin Random House Canada in Toronto, I am currently Editorial Director at Page Two. I’m also co-founder and Literary Director of The Reading Line, a unique literary festival on two wheels.
I’m writing my first book, Tracking Giants: A Tree Pilgrimage, a memoir/travelogue of searching for the 46 Champion trees in British Columbia, catalogued as the largest of their species. Greystone Books will release Tracking Giants in fall 2021.
