Congratulations, You’ve found the website of a fabulous freelance writer.
My name is Leanie Louw and my game is writing excellent content on time every time.
I’ve started moonlighting as a freelance writer in 2014, about the same time that I’ve completed a course on Writing for the Web through the SA Writers College. Since then I have completed assignments in a variety of niches including data science, corporate governance and travel. I’ve also done a gig as a ghost writer for a young adult novel. Feel free to browse through my portfolio to get a feel for my writing style and abilities.
Throughout I have received consistent positive feedback from my clients. Here are some examples:
“Thanks again for your help and I’ll definitely hire you again for additional content work.” – Laquel W
“First let me thank you for always sending the updates on schedule days. It helps me to carve out time to review it as I look forward to the amazing plots and descriptions you add to the story. Great job!” – Gladys K
My super power is transforming complicated topics into easily readable content. I excel in seeing links between seemingly unrelated ideas which helps me to find interesting angles for stories as a freelance writer.
I also run two blogs, partly for fun and partly to hone my skills. www.awkwardandamazing.com deals with funny travel stories, while www.psychwriter.net takes on a much more serious tone as it discusses the latest research on mental illnesses.
I have a PhD in Oenology from Stellenbosch University (i.e. I know way too much about wine). I’ve worked for a large, multi-national liquor company for nine years, which have shaped me to thrive in a high performance environment and to chase deadlines like demon. However, I have since decided that the corporate world is not for me and I would rather spend my time doing what I love – writing and travelling.
