~ Feature Writing ~

Respect for a client’s members, supporters or stakeholders is reflected in my research, interviewing and writing. When a source says, “You captured me perfectly,” I consider it a high compliment.

My editing work goes from the developmental to the structural.

Universities Canada: Partners for Prosperity

Universities Canada had a direction in mind and a good outline started in the Partners for Prosperity report. I stepped in to tighten the existing copy and follow the tone and spirit as I wrote the balance of the report. The result is a seamless product incorporating many voices into one.

Healthy Together: Walk this way

Once the storyboard was set, I oversaw production of this healthcare publication. That included setting deadlines to meet design and print requirements, editing and proofing the entire contents, writing headlines, cutlines and the masthead plus liaising with the contract designer.

Seneca Alumni 40th Anniversary Issue: The Changing Face of Seneca

As managing editor of Seneca College’s alumni magazine I led the development of this anniversary edition. I set section themes and tone, assigned writers and photographers, and ensured content looked forward while celebrating the past.

Seneca Alumni: Seneca Alumni Green Issue

This green edition of Seneca Alumni included environmental elements from a cross section of college schools and departments. We ensured each piece contributed to the overall goals of the edition: to highlight environmental stewardship while showcasing accomplishments of alumni, faculty and staff.

~ Ghost Writing ~

I have ghost written many messages, speeches and op-eds for leaders of large and small organizations. Some involve persuasive arguments on matters of public policy. Others help highlight programs or extend a gracious thank you. Professional discretion is important. I cannot share samples of that work.
