Poetic Communications is brought to you by Shannon McClennan-Taylor. I'm an experienced marketing communications specialist living and working in Calgary, Alberta. I've spent more than 10 years working in corporate, nonprofit and government sectors delivering a wide range of communications that blend the poetic fluidity of classical writing with the precise, articulate clarity of expert professional communications.
I graduated from the University of Leeds, UK, in 2007 with a Master of Arts in International Journalism after receiving my Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from the University of Calgary in 2005. I've held communications and marketing roles at The Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary (BGCC), MindFuel (Science Alberta Foundation), The Legislative Assembly of Alberta, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), and SMART Technologies.
I'm skilled in planning, executing and managing marketing communications and corporate communications projects; media relations; social media content development and management; and writing and editing for a variety of markets and audiences.
I specialize in publicity and media relations; communications planning; web and advertising copy; blogging; social media content development and management; and writing and editing for a variety of markets and audiences, including corporate, nonprofit, editorial, and more.
