Trudy Kelly Forsythe
I am an award-winning writer with 25 years of professional writing experience. My first major assignment was a feature article about moose hunting for a provincial hunting and fishing magazine. Since then, I have written for magazines, radio, newspaper and the World Wide Web as well as for corporate and government clients. I have worked extensively with students providing writing programs focused on finding and maintaining a love of writing.
