Service Description

I am a published poet, former columnist with BC Christian news, current and founding editor of PLUMb: an arts journal, and teach English in the public school system. I hold a Master's degree from Simon Fraser University and have freelanced as a blogger, writer, and editor for the web.

My writing styles are varied and can be adapted to your needs. Whether your audience is a bright-eyed child or a shrewd CEO, I can tailor your blogs, articles, or books to captivate your reader.

I'm new to elance, and therefore eager to establish a reputation here, but my experience as a freelance writer, editor, graduate student, and teacher should give you some assurance as to my writing skills, and my work as editor of the arts journal PLUMb and as columnist for the BC Christian News should assure you I know how to keep a deadline.
