Freelance journalism 


Nicole Laidler freelance journalist London Ontario

Sharing stories, big and small. 

An active freelance journalist since 2004, my work has appeared in print and online locally in London, Ontario and across Canada.  

As an experienced freelance writer, my goal is to tell stories that are timely, accurate, informative and entertaining. Whether I'm covering an arts event for a local magazine, or profiling a university researcher for an alumni publication, my words will speak to your audience and hold their attention right to the end. 

I am always eager to find new stories to share, and am happy to take on assignments for new publications. 

I'll meet your deadline, respect your word count, and file copy that is clean, crisp, and creative.
