Coryl Creates

Coryl Addy is a writer, freelance editor and designer, and multidisciplinary artist based in the National Capital Region of Ottawa, Ontario. She loves languages and conceptual themes. She can be found in the wild listening to music or nearly missing the bus because she’s reading a book. Her idea of “online presence” is one of constant rebirth and reincarnation like a phoenix. Her website has belonged to a blogger, a graphic designer, and a self-publishing writer. She wears many hats, but often switches them out. (They’d be gross and smelly otherwise.)

As a freelance editor, Coryl currently provides a range of editorial services, including editing, transcription, desktop publishing, and book design. She also dabbles in front-end website design and content management system assistance. She is always interested in making new connections and working on new projects.

Look around. See if anything speaks to you!

A New Year: January 2020

I love the starts of a new year, new month, new week, new anything. Beginnings are my favourite part of a project or a goal. It’s the middles and endings I struggle the most with. Even in a new year, I find myself slogging through the middle of the calendar by June. But not in 2020!
