Service Description

I am a retired teacher with a love of language. I have been writing for most of my life.

As a teacher I often wrote stories, poems or songs to help teach concepts. I also wrote a musical and several scripts for school concerts, and put together many seasonal cantatas when I was a Church Music Director. During my work in Christian Education at the Atlantic Baptist Convention head office, I co-authored a camping manual for leaders and directors at church camps and wrote many newsletters. While teaching at a Bible School in Alberta I designed a correspondance course on Christian camping. Since my retirement from teaching I have been pursuing my passion for writing and have had several articles published in magazines and newspapers. I am presently serving as editor of the Stratford Concert Choir newsletter.

Iin 2006, I won third place in The God Uses Ink Novice Writing Contest, sponsored by The Word Guild of Canada. In 2007, I released "Along the Way", a CD of original songs. In July 2009, my poem, Sky Dancer, was set to music as a choral number by Dr. Andrew Gant, from St. James Palace in London, UK, as the grand finale of his lecture series at Stratford Summer Music. In September 2009, I was awarded first place in the Fall Essay Contest and an Honorable Mention in the Fall Free Verse Contest of InScribe Christian Writer's Fellowship.

I am learning to write on assignment and would love to have an opportunity to bring my writing abilities into use assisting you...
