ROBERT FORREST

Robert D. Forrest began his writing career as a six year old when he and his friend earned money for the movies with their neighborhood gossip sheet. Since then, he has written hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles and several books. Except for three years on staff with Canadian Papermaker Magazine, Forrest has been a full time freelance business writer and editor since 1980.

His forest industry association is a birthright. He comes from a logging family and has worked in logging and the pulp and paper industry. He holds a bachelor's degree from the University of British Columbia with majors in English and reading. Forrest is a frequent contributor to Logging & Sawmilling Journal and Canadian Papermaker.

As well as writing feature articles for magazines, Forrest provides other writing services to clients including news releases; customer, investor and employee newsletters; show guides; advertising copy; proposals and a full range of other business documents. A rate card is available on request.

Robert Forrest can be reached by telephone or fax at 604-325-1396 or e-mail at 76730.1524@compuserve.com.
