    I have a lifetime’s experience in content writing – content for different kinds of documents, reports, submissions, blogs, websites and administrative manuals and tutorials. I believe that exceptional content writing (especially when it is content for material to boost the client’s business, products or service) starts with letting the client indicates what is needed and then determine through research what are the strong points of the business, products, service or topic. Only then can the content writer produce the material requested by the client. Being a business-owner myself for many years I have the ability to grasp business initiatives and aims easily - aspects that have to be considered when writing content, whatever the purpose of the document or posting. When asked to evaluate or edit administrative work-manuals and tutorials (to be utilized be employees or clients) I also believe that the editor has to consult with employees/clients before the evaluation or editing is finalized. I not only have the practical experience of writing and editing but also have the academic background enabling me to conduct and use research without plagiarism. My formal tertiary qualifications are BA (THED) at the University of Pretoria and BA Hons at the University of South Africa (UNISA). Over the years I’ve also attended and completed many relevant courses regarding communication, marketing and content writing. Tasks and projects I’ve been involved with over the years include • preparing of submissions, speeches and reports, • conducting marketing campaigns, • developing working manuals and tutorial material. (In 2019 I assisted with the content development of experimental tutorial material for an Australian company.) Apart from my earlier senior posts in Government Service I also was • co-owner and Honorary Executive Officer of Gola Khula Training CC, • founder-member (and currently still Director) of Insurgency Finance (Pty) Ltd, • founder-member (and currently still Director) of Delmi (Pty) Ltd. My process is straightforward: 1) We connect (by email or otherwise) so I can listen to what's needed, the finer details of your business, project or topic, and the characteristics of your target audience. 2) I then dive into performing the research and produce unique material focused on your customers. 3) I’ll then send over the content for your review and will complete final revisions before the due date of delivery. In summary: 1) I will listen to what you as the client need. 2) I can produce virtually all types of content you require including (but not limited to) posts, blogs, documents, reports, submissions, administrative manuals, tutorials, website pages, articles, newsletters, marketing material or emails. 3) I perform in-depth online research from respected sources and ensure all content is 100% original. 4) My work will always be done in English (UK or US), and if you have a South African audience I can also deliver content in Afrikaans. 5) I will always present the first draft before the agreed date of delivery so that you have ample time to review. 6) I pride myself on client satisfaction, so as long as you stay within the original parameters, I will gladly provide unlimited necessary revisions before delivery.

    I possess the power of observation and have an excellent eye for small detail. The secret of being a good writer is fearlessness. You must not be afraid to write from your heart. I'm good at problem-solving and reasoning. I have the ability to communicate, as writing is the art of communication and being able to express your thoughts and emotions. I know how to be organized and creative when it comes to writing. Writing and expressing my feelings was always one of my biggest interests since I was a little girl. As far as my experience goes, I was part of the editorial staff of my School Newspaper and always took part in writing competitions. I was part of Rev's transcribing team. Writing is my passion and helps me; let my writing help you.

    I work hard and fast. My employment history has provided me with exposure to a wide and diverse range of industries. I have also been lucky enough that my skill-set has afforded me the opportunity to be involved in both the creative and technical aspects of these industries. I view myself as a true generalist in the sense that I know enough of almost every subject to create clear and impactful content for virtually any industry. My expertise, however, lies within the Technology and Health & Wellness space. Upwork presents me with an opportunity to put my knowledge and skills to work while waiting for Covid-19 to clear up and the Exhibition and Events industries to get going once more. If you need quality content, fast, and at a highly competitive rate - rest easy my friend, you are at the right address.

    I am a native English speaker with an excellent grasp of the English language. I offer a 'one-stop-shop' substantive editing service. This includes spelling, grammar, punctuation, syntax, readability, flow, tone, style, conciseness, repetition, fact-checking and making suggestions for improvement. I have experience in editing fiction and non-fiction books, academic papers, essays, resumes, business reports, web copy, newsletters, articles and student essays. I also do beta reading of books. I am a stickler for detail and my work is of a consistently high standard. I have never missed a deadline. I am well-read and have travelled all over the globe both for business and leisure. I enjoyed a 35-year long career working in various managerial positions for a multinational LSE-listed corporate in their technical, marketing and NPD divisions. I adapt easily to new challenges and am fully committed to completing whatever work I have, on time, and delivering a top quality output. I am very client-focused and like to build close relationships with my clients so that I can fully understand their specific quality requirements and deliver against them. Given my mature life stage and depth of experience, I can bring deep insight and soft skills to the job which you might not get from a less experienced person. I have an excellent knowledge of MS Word with Track Changes, and of MS PowerPoint. Some of the major projects I have led or been part of are * Editing and ghostwriting a romance novel. * Editing 'Through a Brick Wall. The Real Story of the South African Breweries.' * Editing students' essays in support of their applications to top end universities in the US (see testimonial below) * Editing academic papers, theses and journals * Editing filmmakers' stories in real time for a live wildlife website. Researching and writing interesting and informative wildlife articles to enhance the stories * Writing and editing business, marketing and consumer research reports * Business Strategy development for a multiple award-winning South African communications company * Consumer research consultant at The South African Breweries (now ABInbev) * Leader of new product development projects in the global beverage industry. * Writing technical manuals Qualifications: * Certificate in Copywriting, University of Cape Town * Certificate in Copy Editing, University of Cape Town * Certificate in Copy Editing and Proofreading, SA Writers College * Teaching English as a Foreign Language i-to-i (TEFL) * Certificate in Creative Writing, University of Cape Town * National Diploma in Medical Technology/Pathology (Microbiology) * Senior Management Development Programme : South African Breweries. Note: A significant proportion of the work that I have done and am doing is confidential so I am unable to post these projects as examples of my work. Testimonial. Editing Students’ Essays for Applications to Universities in the US. During 2023, Reina Luck has edited over 100 essays for me. Her substantive editing is consistently excellent. She adds significant value by going the extra mile and proactively suggesting alternative words, phrases, or areas for rewrite, all of which enhance the quality of the essays. She is helpful and efficient and always meets the tight deadlines - usually 12-24 hrs. Her communication with me is prompt and any problems are ironed out quickly. I would highly recommend utilizing Reina’s services. Joyce Chen. 5 October 2023
