Francesca in a few words

Hi! I'm Francesca.

I am an award-winning writer and editor with a master's degree in journalism and +5 years experience in print and radio production, non-profit copywriting, and academic proofreading.

I've worked as a journalist for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and led the content creation for a former prime minister's family foundation. Since 2015 I've worked as an academic proofreader for several European universities, where it's been my job to reinvigorate dry Academese without losing precision or detail.

Let’s say you've written something and it is close to what you want, but not quite there yet. Maybe it needs a polish. Or some help with organization and flow. Or you feel great about it, but you want another set of eyes - sharp eyes! before it goes out into the world.

Allow me to:
-Creatively and carefully manage your content
-Write an article, blog, or newsletter for your non-profit, consulting agency, or startup.
-Edit for structure, and style (substantive and stylistic editing), as well as for grammar and punctuation (copy editing).

I approach each project with joy and rigour and look forward to hearing from you!
