I am a Freelance Content Writer & Proofreader who has always had a passion for the English Language. This has never waned.
My B.A. Honours in Political Studies (1995) at the University of the Western Cape, and my N.D. in Language Practice (2000) at the former Cape Technikon, laid an important foundation for my writing career.
Equipped with these qualifications, I gained valuable working experience in a consumer magazine environment at Fairlady Magazine(2000-2004). Thereafter, I switched to political writing for Parliament of the R.S.A.'s official publication, InSession (2004-2011).
I left my full-time job in 2011 and have since done freelance content writing and proofreading. In order to update my skills, I completed a short course in online social media marketing through the Get Smarter Programme at the University of Cape Town (2015).
Joining SAFREA would give me the opportunity to market myself as a freelancer and broaden my professional network.
