Marketing

I work for several marketing companies, compiling press releases, speeches, newsletters, brochures, buyer’s guides and other marketing-related copy. My work as a journalist provides me with unique insights into what news editors are looking for so we can maximise your reach!

News

I have worked in both community and daily news organisations as a journalist and sub-editor in the print and digital media spaces. My experience at vastly different publications has provided me with a cross-section of writing and interviewing insights - from the more intimate profile pieces to hard-hitting crime. 

Online

From website content to blogs, I am proficient in SEO writing for the online reader. I am also able to create catchy social media content for the more discerning reader. With so many companies trying to attract the attention of online users, it’s important to ensure your online content is accurate, appealing and up-to-date. I can help you with this.

Editing

My linguistics and teaching background have provided me with a thorough grounding in the intricacies of the English language, from spelling and punctuation to semantics and sentence structure. I am also able to adapt the style, register, and tone according to your needs.

About Me

I worked as a journalist in Durban for several years - initially for Caxton community newspapers and then as a daily news journalist with Independent Newspapers – before starting as a freelancer in 2014.

 

I am a member of the Southern African Freelancers’ Association and have written extensively for various marketing and PR organisations on a range of subjects; edited and proofread documents from news pieces to educational manuscripts; and worked on several websites and social media accounts, both in an editing and writing capacity.  

 

Before becoming a writer I worked as a high school teacher in the UK where I taught English and History after having completed my Bachelor of Arts and Post-Graduate Certificate in Education at Rhodes University. I went on to complete my CELTA – a Cambridge-issued certificate for teaching English as a foreign language – which I used to teach English to adults in Vietnam.  

 

I am currently based in the KZN Midlands where I can work, uninterrupted, delivering quality content, on time for clients across the country and worldwide. If you need something written, edited, proofread - or just improved upon - you're at the 'write' place!
