Creative writer and copywriter
Last active: 2 days ago
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 and satire blogs and websites, and have written and edited chapters for various authors.
Within fiction, which is my main area of focus, I write intense, emotional scenes to great effect, as well as dark humour. I write literary fiction and sci-fi, for the most part, but I also have experience in romance and erotica.
Other creative work has included satire, emotional wellness blogging, social media how-to columns, and well-researched, informative articles on a vast range of topics.
I am fortunate to have the opportunity this year to study an honours 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.
In addition to my own creative work, I am skilled at recognising and differentiating good writing from bad. I will utilise these skills to edit, critique and provide expert recommendations to ensure your work meets the high standards required for unqualified success.
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.
Over the course of an honors 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 write realistic characters and bring clarity and insight into stories, whether fiction or non-fiction.
Overall, I'll produce work which is of a very high quality, in terms of writing style and content.
