(Except of course when we go out to play…)
We make developing stories and content easy and fun for clients across multiple platforms – articles, websites, social media, books, blogs, news releases, and more. We are craftspeople in the art and discipline of writing creatively and will guide you in recognizing opportunities to build and contribute to your communities through the stories you have to tell.
Original, professionally written and researched articles are our passion. This includes pitching and writing articles for magazines, newspapers and online publications.
We also bring a story telling approach to our clients in business, non-profit and and social services. This is one of the best ways to promote your product, service or cause in a virtual world. Sharing your stories provides a platform for you to show what you know and how you can improve the lives of your target audience. You can use the article content we provide to add some power to your website, flesh out your newsletters or provide bites for your blog or other social media. See Articles.
Websites and digital content
We know how to enhance online narratives through visual and keyword rich multimedia content that engage audiences, promotes your products and services, pushes your stories out across digital delivery platforms, and ultimately, converts prospects into clients, followers and/or supporters. See websites and digital content.
Ghostwriting is the work of writing stories, articles, blogs or other text that is officially credited to another person. We do a lot of it and have a growing case of byline envy. That said, we are quite happy to stay behind the scenes and put forward the brilliance of experts in business, mental health, insurance, human rights, the environment and more. Our writing process is thorough, professional, engaging and painless. We work with many experts, business people and publications and develop the writing according to the subject matter, audience, pub/site guidelines and industry best practices. We prefer to stay in the shadows for most of our ghostwriting clients but can provide samples if you need.
Many business owners and professionals need help to get and keep going in the essential social media platforms. We have a process that focuses this for you. Give us a short interview and watch the keywords flow with relevant SEO rich content that responds to your market needs. It’s time to get out there. See blogs.
While Leanne has been working on her own novel for a decade (sigh), she co-authored a book about the evolution of workplace mental health in Canada. She’s also been asked to help others write their books and am often a reader for emerging writers. That work continues as does my writing of short stories and poems that she submits to numerous publications and contests as a way of continuously improving my writing and feeding my creative soul. She has many submissions out so watch for updates but for now here’s a peek at a couple of her biz books. See books.
Error-free, accurate work is another critical component of strong content that makes a good first and lasting impression. Besides strengthening the power of the writing, our editing services can help give a fresh perspective to a client’s work. We often see clients who are so deep into the weeds of business or projects that they can’t see their way out to deliver a more marketable, relevant or compelling piece. Let us help – people need to hear your story. See editing.
Poetry and creative writing has been one of Leanne’s past times during the long days of isolation in her woodland home. See more poems.
It was always here
By Leanne Fournier
Steps slip on common ground,
one traveller treads more surely
unfettered by the dragging judgements
of those who won’t step beyond.
The other sees they might have gone sooner and more often
if they’d known their fears were for naught.
It took a virus
moving faster than the trees’ budding leaves,
more quickly than the ice cracking in the narrow creek,
for eyes to alight on these opportunities
that were always here – is that the lesson?
Lightspeed ahead of other flora and fauna
geese protest that nothing has changed
but they are wrong, everything has.
On the path, moss emerges from ice and snow,
deadwood is everywhere,
the weight of what we need to push aside
to walk where we haven’t gone before
because there’s nowhere else to go.
The older trees stand united,
one bent precariously in coming death
no more room to spread its roots,
another hangs suspended
as if judged and forgotten
in the company of its own.
The light of day dims ahead
where no blight invades,
is more beautiful because of its permanence –
it has been left alone
in the company of those who didn’t gaze before
but now can’t look away.
