writing & research services

I'm available for all sorts of writing and research projects.

I’ve written short pop culture pieces for websites and longer essays for specialist art periodicals, and I’ve done copywriting, blogging, and social media for various businesses. I also spent several years churning out long, labour-intensive academic essays and doing all the research that goes along with it.

Whether you're looking for a writer to spruce up your web content or for a person who will happily scour journal database after journal database to help you complete your research—I've got you covered.

grant writing & proposal writing for artists & arts organizations

A successful grant or proposal isn’t just about how great your project is—it’s about selling your pitch in just a few pages, appealing correctly to the jury reviewing your application, and hitting every point on the checklist.

I have written successful grants for project and operating funding from civic, provincial, and federal funding bodies in Canada, including the Canada Council for the Arts, Department of Canadian Heritage, British Columbia Arts Council, and City of Vancouver. I’ve also aided artists in crafting perfect pitches for residencies and public art calls.

I know proposal writing can be confusing and sometimes uncomfortable, but I’m here to help.

If you need help writing from scratch, making your application more persuasive, or just some general guidance for your arts grant or proposal, give me a shout.

blog & website copywriting
(for everyone!)

Having a website that’s free of errors and written in a style that’s appealing to your audience is incredibly important. And SEO (search engine optimization)? Absolutely critical. No one will see your website if they can’t find it, after all.

I’ve written website content for, among others, a bespoke fashion atelier, a photography festival, a forestry company, a law firm, and a Montessori school, and I’ve ghostwritten blog posts for an adventure game company, a nursing education program, and a multi-use arts space.

Delving into new fields and topics, getting that voice just right, and writing click-worthy copy is the name of the game here—one I know well.
