Freelance Portfolio


Louise Gleeson

Louise is a Canadian freelance writer who got her start as a health and science writer, by combining her expertise in Biomedical Science and Anatomy & Cell Biology with a graduate degree in Journalism.

After working in her field for several years, Louise's writing naturally shifted to topics related to family life and parenting, following the arrival of her four children. She also has a lot to say about music, literature and food (because those things make her happy, too).

Late Night Plays has been recognized as one of the 75 Most Influential Canadian Mom Blogs and 24 Mom Blogs You Should be Reading. Louise's writing has also been featured on SavvyMom and BlogHer. She was also nominated for a Canadian Weblog Award and has been an adjudicator for two years. 

Louise's blog was initially launched to help practise her writing skills and create a portfolio. But, thanks to the compelling interactions and relationships that have grown from sharing her stories, it has become a space for honest conversation. Her images and words are known to resonate deeply with her readers.

Although it is a smaller blog, she has a very loyal following of readers with whom she enjoys sharing this journey. Parenthood invites compelling conversation, and Louise and her blog offer a welcoming and compassionate space to share.  

Louise lives with her husband, four young children, and dog on the west side of Toronto, where she can often be spotted with mug in hand, standing with a friend, or peeking in the window of a ballet class.
