Creative Content Writing

Looking for content with style? Are firm deadlines and rigorous standards of quality your top asks?


My specialties are content writing with a strong voice and thorough research to fully understand your industry. If you need a writer that can connect with your audience, look no further. I write content guaranteed to pull in readers.

Copyediting and Proofreading

Do you need an editor who cares as much about your content as you do? Want a firm but fair critic to read over your work?


I'm excited to help make your writing the best it can be! Past clients have lauded me for my substantive editing which still maintains the author's voice. I have training in line editing and proofreading and a keen eye for spelling, grammar, and fact checking.

Game Writing and Narrative Design

Need someone to weave all the narrative elements of your game together? Looking for someone to write unique characters with the depth to carry a game?


I have worked on several games as lead writer in the past 5 years. I also have experience in creative writing and game design with a focus on well-written dialogue.

If you use Upwork, you can find me and see more of my work there!

 

Liam's writing skills are excellent. I rarely get an opportunity to work with such a talented writer. His work is a joy to read and it could be easily published in any major publication. I recommend him highly to anyone who's looking for a true professional.

Liam delivers quality work every time! Every client of mine is so satisfied with his deliveries. He is talented in story telling and his writing skills are reasonably strong. I would love to work with Liam next time for further tasks. Highly recommended.

Hi there, I'm Liam! I'm a freelance writer working out of Canada. My specialty is accessible and well-researched SEO content writing. I'm passionate about delivering content you'll be proud to share with your audience!


In 2020 I graduated from Western University with an BA in Creative Writing and English Language and Literature. I love to have a creative challenge in my work and am an out-of-the-box thinker who can produce innovate content. Outside of work, I like to spend my time making music, playing video games, and working on my creative writing.

Narrative Writing

As an experienced fiction writer, writing game scripts is one of my fortes. I can balance a number of plot paths in my writing and work with designers to meld gameplay and narrative. I have also handled content design work, covering enemy design, item design, and side-quest design. I am skilled at integrating my writing with core game mechanics to ensure my work uplifts the game’s core concepts.

World Design

From entire continents to isolated cities, I have undertaken both geographic and cultural world design. My experience in world building, history, and anthropology all contribute to my world designing. Most of my work is done with pen-and-paper or digital images, though recently I have taught myself to use World Machine.
