About

Have you ever wished you could work with a writer who could read your mind?

Stephanie Regan has an exceptional ability to distill nebulous, vague ideas into sales letters, reports, web pages, proposals, articles, advertising and blogs.

Stephanie’s professional background and life experience allow her to bring depth and context to everything she writes and edits. In her hands, your ideas and communications products will be direct, clear and concise.

Background

Stephanie started her career in print media as a staff writer. Then, a season at the Ottawa International Jazz Festival in a media relations role led to a full-time job as a Digital Communications Adviser for the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service at Global Affairs.

After six years at Global Affairs she left Ottawa to try her luck in Toronto. She worked for a year in downtown Toronto for Industry Canada as a Marketing and Communications advisor. From there she moved to Service Canada.

In 2013 her Service Canada office was closed. Seeing an opportunity to follow her dreams, she launched a clothing shop. As an independent business owner she had to learn about social media, fast.

Her formal training includes a B.A. in Mass Communication, a certificate in Creative Writing from the Humber School for Writers, a certificate in Events Management and an about-to-be-completed certificate in Copywriting from the Blackford Institute of Copywriting.

Her recognition includes a significant Ontario Arts Grant for a writing project and a scholarship from the Writer’s Trust of Canada to attend the Humber School for Writers summer workshop.

Stephanie is a member of the Writer’s Community of Durham Region (WCDR).

Praise from Famous Writers 

“I read the submission and felt it was first-rate. The great thing about
it is, even though its written in a light style, and seems from time to
time whimsical and let’s say “frothy,” the characters have great depth
and verisimilitude. Your characters leap off the page.”

Paul Quarrington (Author of “Whale Music” and “King Leary”)

“This is very, very good. And funny. Your characters are incredibly real. If you don’t keep writing, I’ll be very disappointed.”

-Bruce Jay Friedman (screenwriter, “You’ve Got Mail” and “Splash,” novelist, journalist).
