As a wanderlust writer, I’m passionate about subject matter surrounding animal welfare, environmental sustainability, whole living, outdoor recreation, wildlife preservation, travel and social issues.
In everything that I write, aside from the sporadic journal entry, I strive for quality through careful research and a sincere and clever writing style. In addition, I pride myself on efficiency and am motivated by looming deadlines.
From my most recent position as assistant editor of a city publication based in Edmonton, AB, I bring with me experience in editing, fact checking, feature and front-of-book writing as well as an understanding of what it means to hand in clean copy.
What else? I grew up in Kelowna, B.C. where much of my family still resides. It’s a place where I spent many hours submerged in the beautiful Okanagan Lake and eating fresh peaches from the tree. I’ve since lived in three of the four western provinces along with my husband and slightly neurotic yellow lab. My maiden name, Lynsey Franks, has changed recently. The published work on this website with that handle is still that of my own, just to avoid any confusion.
What I know: CP Style, Photoshop, InDesign and Quark, Microsoft Word, Excel and Nikon camera bodies.
Services: Feature writing, communications, media releases, web content, feature photography, editing and proofreading, research, biographies, ghost writing, speech writing and photo editing.
