You can hire me to write feature length stories, or to produce short, snappy creative content for print, broadcast or online.

… that is experienced, insightful writing for magazines, newspapers and corporate publications, covering everything from business to pleasure, particularly in the areas of modern architecture, design, travel and lifestyle.

My feature writing has appeared in: Ottawa Citizen, Winnipeg Free Press, The Western Producer, The Cottager, Manitoba Business Magazine, Manitoba’s Northern Experience, Home & City, Manitoba Gardener, Ciao and up! (WestJet’s magazine).

2) COPYWRITING …

… that offers high-impact copy for corporate and marketing purposes including: advertising, brochures, press releases, profiles, promotional materials.

3) ONLINE & WEBSITE COPY …

… that provides fresh, dynamic content for your website and online presence, and creates a site that reflects you and works for you.

Whether you’re creating a website from scratch, just need touch ups or require an extreme online makeover, I offer three different packages to help you get your site up and running.

(a) REFRESH THIS PAGE

Did you know the ‘About’ page is the most frequently viewed page on a site? If your site has a page or two that need a new look or a quick update, this is for you.

You will receive:

* One 15-minute content consultation to review your website and discuss how to get the look, feel and style you want, to attract the audience and customers you want.
* Two light rewrites and edits of your ‘Home’ page, ‘About’ page or any other page (i.e., a first draft and one set of revisions)
* Attention-grabbing headlines and taglines

(b) REVAMP & RENEW

Does your site look like it just stepped out of the nineties? Or worse, does it look a digital brochure with too much copy and not enough interaction? If your site is outdated and out-of-touch, this is for you.

You will receive:

* One 30-minute content consultation with me to review your website and discuss the desired look and feel that will showcase you or your business in your best light to attract the best customers.
* Two full rewrites and edits of the content of your entire site. (i.e., a first draft and one set of revisions)
* Attention-grabbing headlines and taglines
* New names or titles for pages, menu tabs or links (as requested)
* Consulting on overall design, navigation and usability

(Note: Does NOT include website design)

(c) WRITE MY SITE

Looking to create a website from the ground up and don’t know where to start? If you need help in developing content for a brand new site, this is for you.

You will receive:

* A pre-call questionnaire and one 60-minute consultation with me to discuss the style and content of the best possible site to reflect you or your business, and attract the audience or customers you desire.
* Writing of all content for your site, with one rewrite. (i.e., a first draft and one set of revisions)
* Attention-grabbing headlines and taglines
