Are you looking for a writer to produce a polished and thoughtfully curated piece of work for your publication? You’re in the right place.
My name is Casey Balon, and I am a freelance writer.
I possess strong written and verbal communication abilities and an aptitude for creating innovative content for a wide range of platforms. During this exciting time of constant connection, I can help your publication, business, and brand make a lasting impact.
I have a love for good journalism and a passion for compelling storytelling. Perhaps it all began in 2009 when I wrote my first piece for the university newspaper - The Sheaf; I continued to serve as a volunteer writer for the paper until 2014.
My first professional experience in the field arrived in 2012, when I was hired as the editor, writer, and researcher for our local municipality’s history book. This opportunity presented one of the most fulfilling work experiences I’ve ever had.
In 2014, I took the leap and started my blog, Books & Bridges, which I used as a platform to begin sharing my voice - my words and my message. It is through this blog that I began sharing my take on the artistic pieces of work that touched my life.
In November of 2017, I joined NaNoWriMo. This decision launched me into a life of inspiration; I began building the house (and the life!) of a writer.
I currently hold the position of editor for an online magazine, The Sask Press, which I launched with the help of other Saskatchewan writers in June of 2018. Additionally, I also curate a pharmacy newsletter for The Medicine Shoppe.
By combining my passion for writing with my background in health care enables me to bring a unique and valuable perspective to the table. My experience as a pharmacist has empowered me to develop a refined set of skills, which includes ensuring accuracy while working under tight deadlines and establishing rapport with individuals from all walks of life. My experience has allowed me to deeply connect and communicate with a myriad of people, which has proven to be incredibly valuable in the creation of targeted messaging.
I can help take your publication to the next level. Feel free to reach out to me today.
