Content Writing/Editing 

Online content, annual reports, special magazine editions, corporate, business & professional publications, academic papers & dissertations, advertising & public relations campaigns. You name the medium & I've probably written for it.

Insightful editing can provide the sparkle a piece of writing sometimes needs to take it from 'just okay' to brilliant. I can provide you with the clarity that comes from:

Choosing the right medium for the message;

Writing to engage specific audiences;

Reviewing for grammatical and spelling accuracy;

Organizing in a logical manner;

Structured to read smoothly;

Continuous liaison with you/your organization to tailor your content to your needs;

Productive, efficient and fun teamwork.

HOW IT WORKS

Writing & editing services are offered through in-person meetings if you live in the greater Calgary or Edmonton areas.  I can also work with clients from anywhere through phone calls, Skype, ZOOM, Face time and emails and can travel to your location at your convenience. 

Fees

Fees for writing & editing are highly dependent on matters such as scope, material/research provided and length, as well as type of writing/editing. For example a complete rewrite would require more time than editing for grammar/spelling. Prices are quoted on a project-by-project basis or an hourly rate if preferred. Travel expenses are extra. GST will be added to fees.
