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.
