Shaun Bernstein

Once a journalist, then a lawyer, but always a storyteller

Storytelling has taken me wonderful places. As the editor of my high school newspaper, I developed a passion for interviewing, and interviewed a wide array of influential Canadians about what advice they had to offer a next generation of leaders.

As a patient advocate, I was involved with the various youth committees of an established medical charity, including serving as editor of their province-wide newsletter. I focused my energy on helping patients, especially young people, tell their stories with a hope that it might inspire others to reach out and build a stronger patient community. 

As a graduate student, my love of storytelling re-kindled my passion for journalism, and taught me how to write for newspapers, magazines, television, radio, and the internet. As an intern at CBC Radio, I had a hand in producing interviews for Toronto’s top-rated morning show, helping to tell Toronto’s stories in a warm and engaging way.

In my legal career, my storytelling played an influential role in my employment law practice. I was able to explain a client’s legal options to them in plain language, so that they could make educated decisions about how to best resolve their matter. I also wrote countless blogs, newsletters, and articles, including my own blog, News From The Break Room, which won prestigious Canadian Law Blog (Clawbie) Awards two years in a row. 

Now I want to help you tell your story. That’s why I started The Write Stuff Agency, because everybody has a story and every business does, too. Whether it’s your story as an owner, the story of how you started your business, the story of your product or service, or the story of what keeps you going - there is always a compelling story there. Those stories are what keep your customers and clients engaged, and they are well worth sharing.
