Karen Lewy


I’m an experienced, award-winning wordsmith and marketing professional who understands the power of well-chosen words to engage, inspire, educate, entertain, motivate and drive positive, measurable results. Writing has taken me down many paths as an entrepreneur and successful business owner, freelancer, ad agency creative director, journalist, scriptwriter and more. I’ve helped co-operative organizations understand, embrace and communicate Corporate Social Responsibility to their members, created successful brands, written charming children’s videos and worked to translate highly technical information into consumer-friendly language. But enough about me…

“Karen is curious and has a creative imagination. She has always been a strategic thinker and a quick study. She excels at creative solutions to communication challenges. On more than one occasion I have referred to Karen as the most versatile writer I’ve ever worked with and that remains true today.”

“My experience with Karen was very positive from the beginning. No task was too big or too small and was always dealt with well within deadlines and budget constraints. Our new logo and tag line were the first undertakings in our project and Karen helped us find the perfect result. Her ability to capture what we wanted to say was a great benefit to our organization and greatly assisted communication with our donors, alumni and general public. Karen made my job much easier and I look forward to working with her again.”

Karen “thinks” about every project, adding value by raising questions and additional opportunities. Her experience is enriched by her appreciation of current themes and trends. I’ve seen her step into employee positions and quickly become a strong asset to the organization. As an independent contractor, she seamlessly combines her skills with the in-house team. She brings experience, insight, creativity and dedication to all her work.”

“I have known Karen Lewy for many years and have had the opportunity to work with her on numerous advertising projects that were undertaken by my firm. I found Karen to be a highly capable wordsmith. Whether it was jobs that required creative or technical writing, Karen always came through for us. She was consistently able to meet or exceed not only my expectations but also those of my clients. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Karen to anyone in need of professional and effective creative or technical copywriting.”

What are your rates?

My writing rates per hour, word, page, post etc. are well within industry standards and are customized to specific projects. This allows me to provide you with realistic, detailed quotes based on your precise needs. I will also coordinate quotes from other suppliers should you contract me for start-to-finish project management including design and other professional services as required.

What if the scope of the project changes at some point?

Together we can revisit the project and, if necessary, I will adjust my quote so we can get back up to speed and move forward.

What if we need quick turnaround?

I can generally accommodate quick turnarounds. I’m no stranger to pulling all-nighters to produce quality work.

Do you work with clients outside of Canada?

Yes, I’ve worked successfully with international clients while based in Canada and while living abroad. I bring added value to clients looking to reach Canadian audiences with relevant, resonating and effective content.
