Watkins Campbell Communications

editing and writing for clarity


Communication clarified

Instant messages, social media and elevator pitches. In the seconds we now have to make to communicate effectively, we must deliver a message and build trust at the same time.

Plain language learns and meets your readers’ needs. It improves productivity. It cuts errors. And it lets others understand you instantly.

I can help you connect in writing with your clients, your employees, your board, your partners, and others you communicate with.

Areas of Practice

Legal information

Legislation, contracts and other legal information still follows the writing style of the 18th century, relying on overly long sentences and Latin phrases that no longer serve people or companies. I have worked with lawyers to clarify their writing, and can help you create documents that saving you or your clients time and money in the long run.  


Governments work to create better cities, provinces and countries. But staff experts tend to overestimate the information needs of citizens and sometimes even each other. I have helped create documents to be readily understood by citizens, experts in other fields and time-strapped decision-makers.  


Constant change means organizations rely more and more on the written word to share vital information. Bylaws, policy documents, handbooks, and websites help employees, board members, and clients understand your message. I have helped provincial and federal governments and not-for-profit boards to keep ideas and information flowing smoothly and effectively. 

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to take away.
— Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
