writing & editing

When I’m not crunching numbers and budgets, I write about stuff. I used to write a lot for the Daily Maverick and a little bit for the Business Day, The Con, and Personal Finance quarterly magazine. I currently write a bit for ZANEWS. I do some editing and teaching on the side also.

Recent projects I have been involved in include:

  • Writing and consulting for two special insert publications in the Business Day. The inserts summarised the National Development Plan (NDP) and the Medium Term Strategic Framework (MTSF) documents. I wrote a fair bit of the copy and also consulted on graphics and layout. The inserts were published in November 2013 and November 2014 respectively.
  • as editor for Clarity Editorial for two publications, one for National Treasury and the other for the Eastern Cape Socio Economic Consultative Council (ECSECCC). I reviewed and edited the internal drafts prepared by staff at the two organisations, assisting the Clarity Editorial team to create the final publications.

Below are a couple of opinion pieces that I wrote for the Daily Maverick.
