I grow inklings into ink
Writing professionally since before you were born. Former National Editor at Sun Media. Freelance writer, editor and project manager. I know good people who say nice things about my work. I can introduce you. Come to think of it, you really should meet them. They're awesome.
What do you need? How can I help you solve a problem? This isn't about me. It's about how good writing and editing can help communicate your message to your audience. Let's talk.
The success of every business boils down to good communication. Whether you're looking for compelling feature content, instructional video scripts, full publications from concept to production, accurate transcription or a good copy scrub, I have the experience and the expertise to make it happen, so you're free to concentrate on what you do. Also, I won a short story contest once. So there's that.
Thinking up words and putting them in the right order.
Press releases, feature stories, newsletters, scripts and the like are charged on a per project basis that are dependent on the amount of research, number of interviews and litres of blood, sweat and tears involved.
Need something professionally written in your voice? Take all the credit from 50 cents/word.
Polishing other people's words to a high gleam
Grammar and punctuation, oh my!
Manuscript evaluations. Publication auditing. Starts at about $1,5
00 and goes up from there, depending how involved the subject, how intense the edit, and whether I need dental work. Freelancers have no benefits, you know.
Bits and pieces
Again, subject dependent, but you can generally expect charges of four times the length of the original recording. Expertise in auto and homes sectors, financial services sector, food and hospitality services, marketing and retail but capable of most topics.
Need regular blog posts, Twitter updates, Facebook posts, email blasts etc.? Great, because I need to make a living. Prices negotiable based on frequency and topic. One tweet a day, for example, is cheep. (See what I did there?)
Need someone to take an entire publication off your hands? I can do that
Online newsletters from about $250/ page for content only (dependent on subject. I should get that made into a T-shirt). Design and distribution additional.
Got something else in mind? I can do that too. From concept to posting or mailing, let's get your message out.
Got a publication to get out and no time to do it? Leave it to the pros. Pro. Me. I've managed a wide variety of freelance writers, editors, proofreaders, translators, photographers, graphic designers and everyone else it takes to put a publication together. And if you've ever worked with these people, you know it's like herding cats. I'm good with cats. From collaborative consultation on content right up to production.
