Want to get it out? Get It Write!

Do you need readable, interesting and understandable writing?

Are you looking for content for employee and association e-newsletters, feature articles, case studies, websites, social media posts and other material?

Do you sometimes have complicated, jargony, dense information that you want turned into appealing content?

That’s the heart of what I do.

Many of my clients are time-starved corporate communicators who appreciate a fresh perspective on a routine subject, or a helping hand to meet production deadlines. For you, I simplify the complex, uncover “what’s in it for me?” and find the human angle in just about any story.

As a writer with 25 years’ experience, I can handle complicated or sensitive topics as well as breathe new life into recurring items. I care as much as you do about reaching people with clear, readable copy that’s warm and friendly. May I help you?

My car insurance renewal arrived this week, and in (ahem) an "unprecedented" situation, it was good news for me – it’s less than it was last year. Of course, it should be. The Ontario government has pressured major insurance companies to lower auto rates during the...
