Sherry Conly

Freelance Writer and Journalist

Location icon Canada

I am a writer and editor with a Bachelor of Arts degree. During University I had a strong focus on Journalism, writing and editing short news pieces as well as feature length articles. Following University, I gained years of experience with business writing-- creating proposals, sales documents and various correspondence. I am now putting down roots as a writer for various BC-based magazines with articles in print and online format.

My portfolio is designed to demonstrate my flexibility with genre, and I have included everything from blog posts to an events column. If there is anything you'd like to see that is not included, please let me know and I'd be happy to share additional items.

Why would I need these features? I'm commonly asked this question when a client is looking at updating their communications system. Why would you need any features when your phone makes and receives calls just fine?
