Poetic Communications is brought to you by Shannon McClennan-Taylor. I'm an experienced publicist, communications and marketing specialist, writer and editor living and working in Calgary. I've spent more than nine years working in corporate, nonprofit and government sectors, successfully delivering a wide array of communications that blend the poetic fluidity of classical writing with the precise, clarity of expert corporate 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. Since then, I've held communications positions with SMART Technologies, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), and the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, while continuing to grow my repertoire as a freelance publicist and communications specialist.
I specialize in publicity and media relations for arts and nonprofit; social media content development and management; and writing and editing for a variety of markets and audiences, including corporate, nonprofit, editorial, and more.
If you're looking to build your audience, refine and spread your message, or promote your upcoming event, contact me to explore what Poetic Communications can do for you.
