James Ellsworth and Words Worth Writing Services
I started Words Worth Writing Services as a vehicle to develop writing skills and professionalism. My first writing contracts were in Ontario and had an educational focus:
informational packages for Grand River tour guides,
curriculum for the Ontario Ministry of Education in History, Native Studies and World Religions, including the independent learning department of TVO,
reviews of History and Philosophy texts for McGraw Hill Publishing,
author of the chapter, Aboriginal Spirituality, in the best-selling text, Exploring World Religions (Oxford University Press, 2001),
a week long session at the Banff Centre for the Arts, focused on memoir
I also started writing feature articles for a fledgling news web site, Cambridge Now, covering history, sports like the 2006 Canadian Open, and travel pieces.
We moved to Victoria, BC in 2007.
While in Victoria, I have written a historical retrospective for the BC Pharmacy Association, articles for the Saanich Peninsula Hospital newsletter, features for Inspired Senior Living magazine, and an historical novel.
