Amy Russell-Coutts

Freelance Writer/Researcher

My expertise in research and writing aims to get to the heart of what matters to my clients, and to faithfully represent their wishes with attention to detail, clear organization, a strong voice, and thorough examination.


About Me

From as far back as my memory goes, I have loved words, the stories of people's lives, and the power of language.

I earned a Master's in English at Simon Fraser University, and have since done work for varied clients and built a portfolio which includes academic research, speech writing, book editing, ghostwriting and more. 

As a capable intensive researcher and writer I am eager to take on any project and craft material a client and I can both be proud of, be it creative or academic.
