Hello. I’m Cailynn, an experienced writer, editor and freelance journalist based in Calgary, Alberta.

I am a curious generalist who writes about many topics, with a focus on the outdoors, urban affairs and small business. I’ve written for The New York Times, The Guardian, The Globe and Mail, Canadian Business, Report on Business Magazine, CBC, Today’s Parent, Next City, University Affairs and numerous other publications. Here’s my journalism portfolio. I also co-write the popular newsletter Go Outside.

Prior to full-time freelancing, I worked in daily news, online journalism and magazine publishing. I have taught journalism at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and covered major stories as a general assignment reporter for the Edmonton Journal. My experience also includes working as a web writer at CBC Calgary and being involved in nearly all stages of making magazines as an editor at Venture Publishing.

I also bring my storytelling skills to businesses and organizations. I write and edit articles, email newsletters, website copy and a variety of other pieces. Read more about my work as a content marketing writer here.
