Chris Morgan

Writer and Editor

I'm a writing professional who lives and works in London, Ontario, Canada. I've authored print and online articles, editorials, advertorials, reviews and features on a wide range of subjects, including politics, culture, science and technology.

Effective writing results from love of language and a desire to communicate meaningfully with other people.

These are the values at the core of my work.
