    No matter what the writing or editing task, I can do it. From crafting a business proposal, to creating and editing content for your blog, I have done it all. I have an Honours Degree in Rhetoric and Professional Writing from the University of Waterloo, and years of personal and professional writing experience. Some of my professional experience includes drafting, and editing correspondence for the Government of Ontario. Also, I led or was involved in many projects at Clarica (now Sunlife), including Clarica’s Contribution Report, the Internal Communications’ site, and Brand Team tasks. Personally, I love to write short stories, flash fiction, and poetry. I also write my own blog at mommypatter.com, and have started my own freelance writing business at 8menwriting.com. My goal is to write full time as a freelancer before my son starts school next year. So far, I am trying to find that all importance balance between work and home life.  less

    I enjoy words. My chief joy in editing and writing is to make copy more clear, cogent and accessible. From my first job as a copy editor at a daily newspaper, I’ve learned to pare down the excess words that clog writing, whether the writing is news, history or fiction. I have worked as an editor for three daily newspapers, edited for a county in Southwest Ohio and worked as a copy editor/proofreader for a California county Economic Development Agency. I have written and edited many published news stories—two are attached. I also edited several book-length annual reports as well as a web site for the Ohio county. I would like to make a living doing what I enjoy.  less
