I have more than 13 years' experience as a copywriter and editor. I started freelancing in 1999 and enjoyed a successful freelance career as a writer and editor before going into magazine publishing in 2006.
In 2006 I joined Top Billing magazine (a prestigious lifestyle title) as Chief Copy Editor, and then moved onto the Deputy Editor position, and finally became editor of the magazine.
After that I launched Estetica magazine in South Africa, and then started freelancing again in January 2008.
I have a wide range of skills and experience, including:
*magazine article writing (especially profiles, interviews and lifestyle pieces)
*educational material editing
*novel writing and editing
*writing of short stories, novels, children's stories, poetry and song lyrics
*copy and research for websites
*writing of brochures, press releases, newsletters and other corporate communications
I have excellent research skills and can work equally well from either client source material or from a blank page.
I was born and raised in Cape Town, and spent five years in Johannesburg once I finished high school.
My client list is wide and varied, and includes clients from all over South Africa, and in a vast range of industries, including leisure & travel, corporate communications, public sector departments and adult education.
I currently work for a large custom-publishing company, where I am Digital Editor and Copy Editor on the Mercedes-Benz account....
