Writer’s Portfolio

Riana Ang-Canning

Freelance writer, editor & social media manager

I create content that is engaging, knowledgeable, conversational and thoroughly spell-checked. I began writing for professional publications in 2012. At the end of 2016, I transitioned to full time freelance writing work. Since then, I’ve gained experience writing list-icles, blog posts and researched news reports. I have also taken on roles in editing, content management and social media management. My writing passions lie in lifestyle, weddings, pop culture, travel and relationships. I am organized, communicative and never miss a deadline.

For a list of my current work and relevant writing samples, please see below.

When I’m not writing, you can find me catching up on House Hunters, ordering sushi or playing with my dog, Ellie. I currently reside in Vancouver, Canada but have clients all around the world. Next up on my bucket list is visiting 50 countries (I’m currently at 32!).
