Richard Hand

Writer/Editor/Proofreader of articles and blogs


Halifax, Canada


Possessing an education and work background in journalism, I understand the importance of accuracy and on-time delivery. Now retired from my "regular" job (2012), providing writing, editing and research are primary means of keeping my skills honed. In addition to a journalism degree (Ryerson University), I also have degrees in arts and science (Dalhousie University), as well as certificates in English language teaching (CELTA) and marketing. Teaching has been another career for me and I have worked in Ukraine and Canada instructing international students in ESL. My writing has been at a professional level for over 35 years and most ... moreof my life as a hobbyist. My experience has been in the broadcast industry (copy writing, reporting and editing), providing copy for the public and private sectors, entrepreneurial endeavours and experience with airlines. My interests are in travel as well as the wine, food and tourist industries with a diversified, published writing portfolio. less
