I am a Toronto-based freelance journalist and copywriter who is available for assignments. 

 

Journalist for Hire

I have written hundreds of articles for publications such as The National Post, The Globe and Mail, NOW Magazine, Maclean’s magazine, TVO.org, etc.

I currently write for several business and trade publications, including Canadian Metalworking, On-Site magazine, Business in Focus and Construction in Focus. I have written dozens of profiles of American and Canadian companies and communities for these periodicals.

I have also written a series of articles about historic topics for TVO.org, the website of TVOntario.

While I specialize in articles about business, industrial, political, historical, and crime-related topics, I am happy to take on all manner of assignments.

I work quickly and well and charge competitive rates. Feel free to contact me at: nhendley@sympatico.ca

 

Copywriter for Hire

I write freelance marketing and promotional copy for corporate and government clients.

I recently wrote about construction machinery for an online promotion. The client for this project was Underdog.ca, a Toronto-based communications company.

I have written copy about industrial mixers, plumbing systems, and the aerospace industry. I have researched and written case studies about building projects as well.

While I specialize in copy about business, industrial, and manufacturing topics, I am happy to take on all manner of assignments.
