what people are saying

“In our longstanding relationship with Jessica Werb, UBC Media Relations has greatly benefited from her skills as a versatile and skilled writer with excellent news judgment. Whether writing for our award-winning brand journalism initiative or crafting engaging press releases on sophisticated scientific research, Jessica brings an ability to rapidly synthesize complex information, tease out its hook, and transform it into a captivating story.”

Kurt Heinrich

Senior Director, Media Relations, The University of British Columbia

“I’ve worked with hundreds of writers in my career, and Jessica Werb stands above as one of the most talented copywriters I’ve met. I rely on her to pep up my own descriptive copy for book covers and online listings, and she does an amazing job of profiling our authors on our company blog. Jessica’s so good that I simply refer to her as Genius.”

Amanda Lewis

Editorial Director, Page Two

“I have commissioned Jess for several projects over the years, ranging from writing feature stories to helping craft early editions of UBC’s Strategic Plan. She is a talented writer and a delight to work with!”
