I am a talented writer of creative fiction and non-fiction, with a journalism background. During my practice days, I worked up to Editor of a weekly independent tabloid. I also have experience as a subeditor, having worked in that portfolio on a newspaper and on a magazine.
Over a period of 5 years, as an accomplished playwright and script-writer, I wrote about sixty 30-minute radio drama scripts, that were published by the Zambian National Broadcasting Corporation’s English Channel, Radio 2.
Over the years, I have also worked as health communication materials developer, working on content, research, proof-reading/editing and design. This led me into mastering the art of graphic design in the process.
I have edited academic papers and books and many writings. I have also assisted researchers and some writers as a ghost writer and proof-reader.
With such a background, I am also experienced with providing highly effective advertising and promotional content, including penning corporate press releases.
To cap it all, I am also an accomplished webmaster.
