Service Description

Since I graduated I have held various positions in leading media houses in India; my moves have largely been governed by the kind of writing I wanted to do at that time. Subsequently I took about 5 years off from full-time work to raise my two children and am just getting back to work.

Since my work experience has been varied, I have written across the board for various media and am constantly looking for new challenges to test different styles of writing. I also love doing rewrites. As an editor I am very meticulous and logical and enjoy helping authors polish their work. Following a work from concept to completing gives me immense satisfaction. Most of all I enjoy writing for children, especially at the pre-school and primary level.



Can write original articles and other material
Can write fiction or non-fiction on any topic given
Can do rewrites
