Monica Shaw

Hi, my name is: Monica Shaw, a freelance writer and founder of Writer's Residence, the service I used to create this writing portfolio! 

I started Writer's Residence in 2008 after successfully launching my own career as a freelance writer. I was lucky to have a technical background and the skills to make my own online writing porftolio. But not all writers have the opportunity - or the motivation! - to learn such a skill. I got together with a group of friends to create Writer's Residence for all the writers out there who'd rather be writing than fiddling with a website. 

Aside from freelance writing, I am also a teacher, data analyst, web developer, and mountain leader. Visit my LinkedIn profile to learn more. Read a few of my favourite writing samples below:
