Hi! I’m Robyn Roste
I’m a writer, marketer, and podcast editor based in Abbotsford BC. I’m passionate about turning piles of ideas into powerful communication tools.
I love writing for a living I want to help you learn how to write for a living too.
With more than 10 years experience in writing, marketing, and audio editing, my experience combines new media, broadcast media, journalism, public relations, and social media. I love Canadian spelling, jogging, and have an embarrassing fondness for knitting.
I began freelance writing in university while finishing my bachelor of journalism. I continued writing while I travelled the world, worked abroad, and lived around Canada.
When I settled in British Columbia’s Fraser Valley, I continued freelance writing but also took work as a full-time blogger at a national not-for-profit. Over the years my role there has changed and matured and I now serve as a media and marketing manager, overseeing strategy, development, and an agency.
They call me a communications strategist
For years now I’ve made a living off professional writing—marketing, blogging, tourism, journalism, and now helping others share their story.
How did I do this?
By becoming an expert at taking a pile of unorganized ideas and shifting and shaping them into powerful communication tools.
I love writing for a living and if you have the same dream I want to help you reach it. As I meet more and more aspiring writers I’m noticing a lot of people seem to be stalled out or stuck at the starting gate. My heart goes out to you. But there is hope! If this describes you, please get in touch. I think we have a lot in common.
