Portfolio

Thank you for considering me for your writing needs. Apart from my blog posts, have a look at a few of my writing samples below:

“Working with a freelancer such as René brought a new dynamic to the marketing narrative of our clients. Her research, insight and concise structuring of content and copy development adds tremendous value to our broader marketing strategy.”

– Janthinus Schrage, Creative Director at eFusion Digital

Editorial

As the former editor of Safari News, I oversaw the entire production process. See old issues on Magzter (create a free profile). Unfortunately, the publication closed down during the Covid lockdowns.

“René se werksetiek is uitnemend. Sy mis nooit ‘n sperdatum nie en die inhoud wat sy skep is van goeie gehalte en getuig van deeglike navorsing. Benewens haar werksetiek is haar interpersoonlike vaardighede ook goed. Sy is nie bang om vrae te vra wat sal verseker dat die taak perfek uitgevoer word nie. Ek beveel René graag aan vir werk. Sy sal ‘n bate vir enige werkgewer wees.”

– Cilleste van Dyk, voormalige bestuurder van Inhoud en Taal by Solidariteit
