Need a writer to help you with

  • content marketing?

  • proposal writing?

  • copywriting?

Then you’ve come to the right place. My name is Anne Papmehl and I’m a freelance business writer based in London, Ontario, Canada. I help clients with all of the above business communications services and more.

Simply put, I’m a writer who can write for the timesthe times when you need to communicate in a way that’s friendly, informal, and engaging, or the times when when your communications need to be more technical, formal, and authoritative.

If these sound like polar opposite styles to you, you’re right. I thrive on working in both the creative and technical spheres – though not necessarily at the same time! Strangely enough, these opposites complement each other: my report, technical writing and journalism skills help to lend credibility to my content marketing and copywriting, while my storytelling and creative skills aid with adding colour and interest to my report and proposal writing.

I write in diverse media and formats – print, digital, newspaper, magazine, article, blog, brochure, report and technical proposal. As for topics, I can write about virtually anything, but here are the ones I write on most frequently: health care, finance, engineering, HR, entrepreneurship, innovation and sustainability.

My clients include:

  • private and public sector organizations
  • communications and custom publications agencies
  • consultancies
  • non-profits
ecostrat ... the name

People often ask me about my company name. "Eco" refers to both "economy" and "ecology". This reflects
my personal belief that a prosperous economy and healthy, sustainable ecological systems go hand in hand - 
as opposed to one at the expense of the other. The "strat" stands for strategic, as in aligning with the strategic
communications goals of my clients. Or to put it in a more linear way:

eco + strat + COMMUNICATIONS = ecostrat COMMUNICATIONS

I originally created my business as a niche area - specializing in environmental sustainability communications - something I still do. But over the years I've come to write on a broader suite of topics like finance, healthcare, engineering and HR. Since sustainability intersects with many of them, I've opted to keep the name. Plus, I can't be bothered to change it!
