Copywriting and Marketing

HBFIT – One of the brands that I have completed copy writing work for. This is only one sample that I produced for them. I covered topics on health, beauty, and fitness.

Parachute – I have written about Toronto culture and nightlife for this brand. This blog is an off-chute of MapQuest.

Fiction

Violent Entrails — A short horror story about a young girl struggling with her own inner demons published in the Hart House Review 2014 Issue.

Other Writing

Ghostwriting – I have ghost written blog posts and articles on topics in the digital marketing and finance industries. These articles ranged from 800-1000 words and included high levels of research and fact-checking.

Technical Writing – I have researched, written, and compiled internal documents for use in training. I have also compiled resource documents for various communities to make the information more accessible for the communities that require it.

Editing

I have also provided editing services  for the following publications:

The Spectatorial, a literary journal from the University of Toronto community about and containing speculative fiction. I provided copyediting services.

Boldface, the blog of the Toronto Branch of the Editors’ Association of Canada. I provided copyediting services.
