I’m Kim Siever,
and I’m a copy writer in Lethbridge, AB.
I’ve been writing and editing for over 30 years. I specialize in making your copy clear and concise.
People are always surprised when I tell them I’ve been writing and editing for over 30 years. True, much of those 3 decades saw me editing and writing off and on. But, I’ve been getting paid for my writing now for over a decade, and I’ve been running my copy writing business in Lethbridge for over 5 years.
If your writing is perpetually plagued by wordiness, then you’ve come to the right place. I specialize in writing that eliminates wordiness and making messages clearer and more concise.

My latest writing tips
Here are a handful of the most recent articles I’ve written on writing, editing, and grammar.
How much do you charge?
I charge per page, not per word or per hour.
I charge $25 per page for writing. That’s based on 12 pt Cambria font with 18 pt leading (in other words, 1.5 line spacing).
What’s your turn around time?
It usually depends on my schedule at the time. If I’m working on multiple projects, it may take me a bit longer than if your project was the only one.
Generally though, if it’s just 1 or 2 pages, I can do it in a day. An entire website might take me a week or so.
Another factor is how much guidance I receive, and how satisified you are with the first draft.
What kind of writing work
have you done?
My writing experience is pretty broad. I’ve written website copy, marketing copy, correspondence, newspaper and magazine columns, blog posts, print and electronic newsletters, and much more.
If I had to pick one specialty though, it’d be writing for the web. I have over two decades managing websites, so I understand how to keep web readers engaged.
One final thing. Recently, I started working in the Writing Centre at the University of Lethbridge, where I tutor undergraduate and graduate students to improve their academic writing. This gives me an added perspective to use when I write copy for you.
“Kim exceeded my expectations and provided additional value through his intelligent research and writing. Both jobs required generating search engine optimized content that is also engaging and inspires an action from the customer. He had very little direction and time to get it done. Needless to say he pulled it off with tremendous results.”Zlatan Fazlagic
