Hi there,

I recently graduated from the University of Cape Town with a degree in Media, Journalism and Business French. I am currently writing for two online newspapers, and just like to get myself involved in things. I would like to try out sub-editing, as I think I could do quite well, and would relish the opportunity to hone my skills. I am also currently editing a book, but this project is about to finish and i am looking to take on new work.

I look forward to (hopefully!) working with you smiley - smiley

Dr Anthea - ah who needs to learn things... just google it!

sorry you've been waiting for a while
I would recomend that you look at peer review to try and get a feel for the house style and help with suggestions perhaps even try writing a guide entry yourself,
there are lots of things happening in the background of the site at the moment so all help is greatly appreciated

perhaps you would like to work for the post our onsite news paper
