This article was written for the local newspaper, Worcester Standard, after I travelled with the Byderhand Project (under the subject group Creative Writing at the School of Languages) for an interactive project with the Pioneer School for the Visually Impaired. The article was also published on Netwerk24’s website.
The following articles were written for NWU-Potch Arts, where I worked as an arts reporter for 2018. They were published online in Afrikaans and English.
I worked as a news reader and journalist for PUKfm for two years (2015-2017). During this time, I wrote and read various news bulletins and reviewed arts shows at Aardklop Arts Festival 2016. Here are some examples from 2017.

Vergeet-My-Nie Ladies Residence
For my residence’s internal publications during my time at university, the following articles featured in the VeMiNin magazine and the Vergeet-My-Nie yearbook.
I wrote the following drama script for Heide Ladies Residence in 2018, for the Campus Drama competition of the NWU Potchefstroom campus. The drama came in third place in the overall ladies division of the competition.
The following comedy theatre piece was written for Vergeet-My-Nie Ladies Residence and Caput Mens Residence for the annual First Years Concert on the NWU Potchefstroom Campus in 2019. The drama won fourth place in the category for Script and Storyline.
I also dabble in writing and illustrating for children. The following links lead to a published short story for children and a manuscript I wrote for my final year Creative Writing module.
As an additional writing commission, I was asked by the content coordinator of #ImagineKidz, a nationwide church camp for children, to write the messages and workshop content for the camp manual (Gr. 4-6). This material cannot be published here, but will be used in 2019 by the camp leaders all over the country to present the central theme and message of the camp.
