About the editor

About me

Work experience

I work as a self-employed freelancer under my registered CC: Write Skills (www.writeskills.co.za). I function in two main areas:
- Editing. I focus on the following areas: academic papers, including Master's, PhDs, books, textbooks and journal articles; research reports from government entities, NGOs, SOCs, think tanks, etc.; annual reports and project reports; journals; non-fiction books; education guides, etc. I have edited hundreds of academic papers, journal articles and reports over the last 30 years, as well as a fast-growing list of books.
- Writing. I write/develop content for text books and training courses, and write in-depth articles for magazines, as well as blog posts. I have written/developed a very long list of training courses over the years and there is a growing list of chapters that I have contributed to tertiary text books. I have also written a number of manuals and guides. I have been registered with ServiceSeta as a moderator and assessor since 2008.. I also research and write about social media marketing and in the niche field of book-to-film.
