About Me

As an English language writer based in Montreal, it takes persistence and no little talent to land a full-time position in your field. Luckily I’m a person with both traits in abundance (I’m also extremely humble). Since graduating from Concordia University in 2007, I have worked as a writer and editor both Freelance and full-time. If you would like more information about my Services, rates, Portfolio or any of my work experience, please don’t hesitate to contact me:  lisa@lisahoekstra.com.
