Project:
Salute to Mother's Day, Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows Times


Objective:
Write a unique Mother's Day article.


Outcome:
I didn't want to write "just another" Mother's Day story. As a new, out-of-town reporter at the Times, I thought about all those people out there who didn't have their mums to celebrate with. Through a funeral home website, I e-mailed a man who'd posted a touching obituary about his mother, Jessie, who had passed away that March. He agreed to an interview and we spent hours at a diner discussing his mum's status as "the best janitor in the world." Out of all the articles I've written so far, this is definitely one of my favourites.

Project:
Press release, Hawks Ave.


Objective:
Compose a press release announcing and explaining a Vancouver clothing line's online photo contest.


Outcome:
This was the epitome of "high-tech" fashion: Hawks Ave.'s eco-friendly styles went digital when designer Jenny Sandberg put a call out for photos of fans wearing her clothes. "How do you rock Hawks?" received over 70 creative submissions on the brand's Facebook page and the press release, combined with photos, highlighted some of the more interesting entries.

Project:
Poetry book, Passion before Perfection


Objective:
Compile random pieces of prose from over the years into a book and self-publish a 70-page book.

Outcome:
I called the book Passion before Perfection because I had not yet been through post-secondary studies - but I still had the passion to write. Looking back, the result was not as polished as I would produce now but the experience prompted me to enroll in Print Futures, a professional writing program at Douglas College. The book is still sold in local bookstores.


Project:
Ad copy, Tritex Fabrics Ltd.

Objective:
Compose lively product descriptions of the fabric wholesaler's seasonal lines.

Outcome:
It's always fun to work with products and advertising, especially when it's aimed at such a creative audience: interior designers. Tritex shipped me the fabric swatches that I examined before coming up with short, descriptive paragraphs. The sample box was shipped back within days.
