content and commas is

16 years of experience

I’m in the business of words. And words, no matter where they appear, are vital. Even in a world dominated by images, sounds and videos, poignant writing holds significant power. In fact, marketers are now increasing spending on content marketing.

My business has taken me through content development and editing, creation of a wide range of communication materials, book editing as well as journalism and media consultation. And after 12 years specifically in the client-based writing and editing industry, I understand how to create content that, in addition to being effective, engaging and creative, is also free of grammatical errors and technical jargon. 

Whether I'm editing what you already have or creating customized content from scratch, you’ll end up with the highest level originality and powerful messaging. 



All estimates are free and some rates are flexible depending on the project. I’m always willing to take your budget into consideration.


What's being said

Since 2009, Centennial College has utilized Izabela’s writing and editing expertise. As the Marketing and Communication department’s only external writer and editor, Izabela has crafted and edited copy that proves she has an advanced ability to understand our messaging and brand, a keen eye for detail and a writing style that she is able to adapt to whatever tone is required. All of this makes her stand apart as a communications professional and is the reason I recommend her to other College departments, which are always pleased with her work.
Bruce Williams, Director, Marketing and Communications at Centennial College
I have had the pleasure of working with Izabela Szydlo long enough that I can spell her name without cheating. Also, long enough to have watched her grow from an outstanding section editor and creative page designer to running her own business. Currently, Izabela is one of my consistently depended on writers in the Content Solutions department at Star Metro Media. Izabela’s work ethic is unrivalled; she is never late with her content, clients request her and I am assured her copy will come in clean and engaging. What else can I say? Whatever Izabela takes on she takes on so completely, making my job easy and making me look good.
Miriam Osborne, Managing Editor, Special Features at Star Metro Media
The communications landscape in Canada is changing and Izabela understands these changes and the demands that come with them. She is able to keep in mind the needs of the client, while reaching their audience with an authentic and accessible voice. Her writing and organizational skills are second to none, and her work maintains a true creative flare.
Beatrice Bastedo, Former Account Manager at Merkato Communications
Over the last two years Izabela has written articles for me on a wide variety of topics — business, homes, health and arts, to name a few. She always knows what aspects of a story will best engage readers, and her writing has a smooth, easy-to-read style. Izabela always meets deadlines, no matter how unreasonable they sometimes are. Our clients have been delighted to work with her.
Chris Macknie, Associate Producer, Postmedia Content Works
Izabela was the content creator and editor for two of my clients’ websites. I was impressed with Izabela’s communication skills, proficiency, attention to detail and the thoughtful way in which she chose to tell the clients’ stories. Her writing and editing skills are clearly well polished, and she is passionate about her work.
Mark McKay, Content Marketer, Social Strategist, Executive Producer

MY NAME IS Izabela

When I was eight, I decided I wanted to be a journalist. Many people told me I would change my mind. At 14, I was published for the first time. At 21, I graduated from Canada's top journalism school at Ryerson University with a Bachelor of Journalism. Since then, I have worked as an editor and reporter at national publications, edited award-winning, bestseller books, and created and edited content for a wide range of clients. Being a curator of words is not just my career but also my passion.
