One of the many hats Darcy wears, is that of a freelance writer. She loves telling people’s stories for periodicals. The range of topics is endless and the subjects fascinate her.
She enjoys interviewing people and finding out who they are and getting their essence across to the reader. Darcy loves to put words on paper and arrange them so they fit together like a beautiful jigsaw puzzle. Then it’s time to cut and slash, massage and morph, then take out everything that does not contribute to the story as a whole.
When she’s done, she sends it off to the editor who combines it with brilliant headlines, creative graphics and beautiful photographs
A little horn tooting – when Darcy was living in the Okanagan and working as a freelance writer she was voted one of the Okanagan’s Top Writers, twice!
Location is a State of Mind
While Darcy is now located on Vancouver Island, she spends quite a bit of time in the Okanagan and in the Lower Mainland. She writes for great local, provincial, national and even international clients. Her main focus has been EQ writing for travel guides, travel magazines, and travel blogs. She’s travelled to amazing places like Haida Gwaii, scoured the Lower Mainland and visited friendly towns like Trail, BC, all for a good story. Arts, culture, technology, food, it’s all part of the stable of work she’s produced over the years. Over 1,000 articles later, she still loves taking a road trip for a great story.
Freelance from Afar
Darcy writes for various publications under her name and under pen names, across the country and around the world. She is currently the editor for BC Wine Trails. As a wine lover, this position is a perfect fit for her.
