Freelance researcher/writer/editor with journalism/teaching background
I'm a recently-retired, award-winning journalism professor and ex-journalist with 40 years' experience researching, writing, and editing articles, proposals, feature reports and news releases for radio and television news and sports. I taught student journalists for 24 years to write in tight, clear, conversational style.
I'm also a former Canadian parliamentary correspondent with overseas experience, and general assignments in politics at all levels of government, education, business, health care, sports and entertainment.
In retirement, I'm a freelance writer/editor for a web design and marketing company, and a publicity and program copywriter for the Prince Edward County Jazz Festival and the Trenton Big Band Festival.
My writing "sweet spot:" tight and crystal-clear copy using shorter sentences, simple words, and conversational style, without sacrificing impact or reader interest.
I can demonstrate that I'm fast and accurate.
I've been published in The Toronto Globe and Mail: Lives Lived
I produced my own web video from the mountains of Chiapas, Mexico: "The Saint of Chiapas"
