Backed by decades of experience in communications, journalism and public relations, M.E.S. Editing and Writing Services manages communications projects from concept to final product, bringing them in on time and within budget.
Your story might be in the form of a social media campaign, website, multimedia presentation, newsletter, brochure, speech, report, book, radio script, multimedia presentation, press release or other communications product.
My name is Marion Soublière and as owner of M.E.S. Editing and Writing Services, I vow to craft a clear and compelling story on your behalf. That's been my goal throughout my career, both as a magazine and newspaper editor and writer, and as a senior editor and writer during the 11 years I worked at a fast-paced communications agency in Ottawa.
Highly organized and detail-oriented, I can manage your project from start to finish. Often, research, writing, editing, fact-checking, photo research and proofreading are all part and parcel of projects that I oversee. M.E.S. Editing and Writing Services works with a network of talented suppliers, including other writers and editors, translators, Web developers, designers, printers and others.
I've also written several editions of a book geared to Canadian small businesses called Getting Work with the Federal Government: A guide to figuring out the procurement puzzle (Bloomington, IN: iUniverse). The latest edition, published in 2010, is available from Chapters.ca, Amazon.ca, Kobo.com, iUniverse.com and other online retailers. Read the first 23 pages courtesy of Google Preview (click on the icon below the book's cover).
Getting Work with the Federal Government simplifies the sometime-confusing Government of Canada procurement process, which is now undergoing sweeping changes that include new e-procurement tools and streamlined purchasing practices. A 2011 report by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business found that 60% of small and medium-sized businesses in sectors most likely to sell to the Government of Canada either chose not to do so, or felt it was too difficult and not worth the effort.
I can attest that working with the government itself, however, is very rewarding. Since 2007, I have held standing offers with the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat, the Library of Parliament, Industry Canada and the Privy Council Office.
I am also a registered supplier with the Government of Canada's Professional Services Online database.
“(Getting Work with the Federal Government) is an indispensable reference that's helped me understand the procurement process better and, more importantly, get me on the government supplier list.”
