We’re building a network of Vancouver Island copywriters who are keen to assist artists with grant applications, CVs and other wordly tasks.

Our services range from coaching/light editing, to complete application preparation. We offer a sliding scale of $30-$50/hour. By way of rough example, a 4-5 page grant application can take 8-10 hours.


Yes I need that!
