Profile Summary

I've been writing for over five years, both as a personal means of expression, as well as contracted freelance work. Over that time, I have completed numerous short stories, penned articles for social media, blogs, and websites, and have written and edited chapters for various authors.

Within the corporate field, I write engaging copy for businesses and entrepreneurs, which provides information and guidelines, while maintaining the reader's interest and keeping them entertained when appropriate.

I am currently studying a postgraduate degree in Creative Writing through Wits University, during which I hope to perfect my writing style, as well as gain experience from interaction with and feedback from experts in the South African writing community.

Over the course of a postgraduate degree in Psychology - including experience with group therapy and trauma counselling - I have gained great insight and perspective into human nature. This is a major strength in my writing. I am also adept at doing accurate and extensive research.

Overall, I'll produce work which is of a very high quality, in terms of writing style and content.

Thanks for reading!
