Writing and Editing, Perfectly Worded

Able to leap tall buildings at a single bound and craft punchy and relevant copy in the areas of business, law and politics. Superman and Green Lantern ain’t got nothin’ on me when it comes to story development and copy editing.

Experience and Skills, Oh My!

For the last 15+ years, my beat has been the auto retail business in Canada as seen from the viewpoint of its new-car dealers. The world of auto retail is never dull. How can it be when millions of dollars are at stake? And I’ve seen it all and written about it all – from the advent of the Internet and the consumer revolution, the rise of dealers groups to the Millennial revolution and Virtual Reality.

And when the law rears its ugly head, I use my legal skills to decipher what’s going on.

In a previous incarnation, I was a criminal lawyer who argued cases before judges and juries.

Oh, did I mention that I have written on topics as diverse as kosher food and exotic plants?

At Your Service

So I guess you can say I’ve seen it all with more to come. And now I’m editor and copy editor for Wordsperfect, my own company. So if your press releases put readers to sleep. If your speeches leave them running for the exits, I can help. That’s why I call my latest venture Words Perfect. At your service.

An Endorsement Eight Years in the Making

“I have known and worked with Lawrence Papoff for nearly eight years. As Associate Editor of Canadian AutoWorld magazine, Lawrence was a driving force of creativity and original journalism in the automotive space.

His keen eye for facts and accuracy lent perfectly to the detail required when writing about business and financial matters. He has a sharp attention to detail when editing, a firm understanding of CP Style and was a valuable member of the organization both personally and professionally.

His writing is strong and fact-based but can also accommodate the ease and subtly required for feature work.

Lawrence is well experienced with story development and has a versatile talent that can straddle any number of subjects and themes.”
