A few words about me...

Writer. Hockey Mom. Business Owner.  

I am an award-winning freelance writer, hockey mom, and the owner of Spilled Ink Writing & Wordsmithing. 

I'm a free spirit who put down roots but never lost her taste for adventure. A former classical musician and world-traveller.  An entrepreneur who is lucky enough to love her second career.

I believe that words can do more than simply communicate an idea. They can set a scene, evoke an emotion, and provoke a response. They have meaning, sound, and rhythm. 
Words are the tools of my trade, and the raw material of my craft.  
I’m a professional Wordsmith – a Writer, an Editor, a Business Communicator. And I write until I get it right.

But everyone can write, right?   

Finding the right words to tell your story, shaping your marketing copy to fit the design, crafting website copy that is reader and search-engine friendly, and polishing it to perfection is not easy.

It takes training, time, and experience.  

If you've been stumped by a blank page, struggled to find the perfect phrase for your corporate communications, or wondered how to generate buzz about your latest venture, I can help. 

Still not convinced?

Here are seven good reasons to trust your words to a professional writer:  

> I can save you time, and that saves you money.
> I can give your copy polish and pizazz.
> I can hook your audience and keep them reading to the last word.  
> I can hone your message and help deliver it to the right people.
> I can shape your message to fit your medium. 
> I can help your business or not-for-profit find its unique voice.
> I can translate even the most complicated ideas into words that everyone understands.

If you're still reading, I've made my point!

A few words about working with me...


London Ontario freelance writer Nicole Laidler


A passionate communicator, who takes your words seriously.

I've been told that I am easy to work with. That's probably because I genuinely enjoy my job. Whether I'm writing a business profile for a local magazine or website content for an accounting firm, I strive to make the process a pleasure for everyone involved.

As a solopreneur, I write every word. I do not subcontract any of my copywriting.

I don't do graphic design, but I do work with top designers for website, internet, videos, and print. And I'm happy to make an introduction. 

I am a mistress of time management. I pride myself on meeting your deadlines and working within your budget. If I run into an issue that may delay your project, you'll be the first to know. 

Whether you're starting from a blank page, or have existing copy that just needs a good polish and some extra pizazz, I'd be happy to discuss your writing needs.
