Weaving wizardry into your words
   South Africa

Overview

I like good food, good wine and happy clients. I specialise in academic writing, content writing, proofreading and copy editing, and will inject voracious verbosity or astute austerity into your words - depending on what floats your boat.

All my work is conducted with the highest level of professionalism and the final product is always a concise and persuasive read.

Service Description

I graduated in 2012 from the University of Cape Town with a very writing and research dominated degree. In the final year of my studies, my thesis was published as a working paper for the Centre of Social Science Research. I am also an avid reader, keenly interested in almost everything, and bear untold disgust for poor grammar and misplaced apostrophes.

Through academics, I have developed a keen eye for coherent content and correct grammar, and will not rest until a piece of writing achieves a robust structure. In my professional capacity, I have created website and marketing content for an extensive audience, and have had a number of articles published in Africa Outlook magazine, the Sowetan, and a host of other national publications (see portfolio).

In conclusion, my skill set allows me to produce creative and error free content, and I offer the following service package with considerable aplomb:

>Proofreading
>Copy editing
>Article writing
>Research
>Report writing
