Writing

Some people say writing is an art. They talk about creating a stunning piece with words as the paint, tone as the colour – and overused metaphors like these to add a bit of gloss to the whole. Personally, I like to think of writing as a very creative office job. Sure, a colourful vocabulary is a great attribute, but unfortunately, it isn’t all about stringing beautiful words together. A good piece of writing needs structure, the right tone, an appropriate vocabulary, a good balance between conciseness and details, and, I must admit, a nice font and some eye-catching pictures never hurt.

For me, the ultimate goal of writing is to pass on a message to readers, and to have that message linger in their minds for as long as possible. How I do that? That’s my secret. But I can do it for you if you like. I have contributed to several publications, both online and in print, and I work as translation copywriter for a broad range of agencies and clients on anything from one-liners to newsletters and full media campaigns. Feel free to browse, enjoy the read, and then decide if I can help you create some art. Or an article – take your pick.
