Generally Inclined

As Doug Lintula expanded his writing horizons, he encountered wide-ranging opportunities for writing and editing assignments through advertising agencies and management consulting firms, as well as with cultural groups, professional associations and educational institutions.

    Doug has also helped research and public participation consultants carry out community liaison projects.

    In Toronto, he worked with Bidell & Associates for the Toronto Transit commission to register neighbourhood concerns regarding the expansion of its Greenwood Yard subway-car repair facilities and report on project progress.

    In Brantford, he aided Robert Hann & Associates with their study for the Ontario Ministry of Health on the community impacts of the city’s charity casino.

MUSICALLY CAPTIVATED

Doug has contributed  incidental music to various freelance projects, and music is never far away in his theatrical work. For his mini-musical Gallagher, he wrote both music and lyrics for seven songs to help tell the story of a household cat that runs away from home to seek fame and fortune as a writer in the Big Apple. The show was staged at the Alumnae Theatre in Toronto as part of its 2003 New Ideas Festival. A longer version is in the works.
