Layout Artist, Creative Writer, Editor, Proofreader, Layout Artist
I have been working as part of an editorial team for 16 years now. Being the assistant editor, I get to interview people and know their stories, go to places and write about their history, their people, their experiences. There is so much about life that makes me wiser and more daring as a writer as I go along in this journey. I have learned that in this life, we continually learn, make mistakes, improve on what we're doing and strive for what we hope to achieve.
I am privileged to be in a position at work where I not only get to live my passion as a writer but also as an editor, proof reader, layout artist. I can now say for a fact that I can come up with a magazine all by myself, whatever material is given to me. I can layout magazines, newsletters, leaflets and the like, even invitation cards, with very minimal and even no supervision at all. If there is a need for some research in order to come up with an authentic and credible material, I can also do it, as long as instructions are properly given.
I have already edited three books and was a ghost writer for a true-to-life story. I did not only enjoy doing these things but most importantly allowed me to discover more about the facts of writing a book, like making sure I deliver quality work on time no matter what my personal circumstances may be.
I have been a writer as long as I could remember. Back in primary and secondary school, I would find joy in writing letters to my closest friends and this hobby has brought me to achieving things as an aspiring writer. I was published twice in our country’s national paper, been blogging since early 2000 here http://likewaterinwater.blogspot.com and currently write in this magazine www.misyononline.com There is a website I am working on right now, www.poetsamongus.wordpress.com
