Hi! I’m Gillian McAinsh, a freelance writer, editor and content creator.

The background: I’m a veteran newspaper journalist who has adapted to the digital world.

I worked at The Herald in Nelson Mandela Bay until June 2019 and since then have been writing in fields ranging from academia, fashion, health and wellness and commerce. Specific projects so far have included planning and implementing multi-media publicity strategies, presenting a writers’ workshop, creating and editing content for several university publications, designing graphics, animations and shooting video for clients’ social media channels, and writing, writing, writing … actually, I have such diverse interests that I’m pretty much up for anything!

I also have an active interest in the NGO sector and have generated publicity for several charities in Nelson Mandela Bay.
