    I'm a professional writer who has worked as a journalist for 18 years. My current position includes covering education and passion topics identified by readers as being important to the community. The job requires identifying and researching story topics, writing stories, creating videos, and editing copy when required. I also have three years worth of experience writing for a variety of freelance projects including consumer legal websites, daily marketing deals, publicity kits for writers, and a consumer blog. My freelance experience includes two years spent staffing an online national news desk that posted stories for myFOX stations. During that time I also aggregated copy and wrote stories on trending topics that were published on the stations' websites. I am searching for more freelance writing and editing projects. I treat freelance like a job, not a pastime. I am open to all freelancing opportunities but am especially looking for repeat assignments.  less

    Hi, my name is Chevaun Roux. I am graduate from Stellenbosch University with a BA in Value and Policy Studies. My writer profession started as soon as I graduated from university and have spent years writing about any and every topic under the sun- whether these were short emotive pieces, product pieces, whether it meant writing marketing e-books for overseas clients, or creating stimulating content for website owners. The practice of editing and proofreading falls within my domain of work as well, which also includes every topic imaginable. I am able to write with fluidity and ease, and have the ability to make words and thoughts flow into each other without breaking the feel of the piece. In the world of freelancing there are certain things that have to be taken into account all the time in order to produce something of superiority in this competitive world- this is namely punctuality and quality. Without these two key factors completed works would not have the same effect and standing as they should. Producing something of a high standard that meets a deadline are two key points in creating and releasing a final product. Writing is a wildly creative and interesting undertaking and I try to harness these features in every article I write, or in every piece of work that I edit. It is my belief that with these notions in mind every work I deliver will be compelling, accurate, inventive and worthwhile.  less
