Dear Future Boss,
You’ve met me on the streets or online. Perhaps I’ve given you my business card, or invited you to join my Facebook page. You may even have seen that I’m “open for business”, but what does that mean?
My name is Anna Stroud, and I’m a writer for hire.
Future Boss, this is me:
I’m a writer, reader, editor and teacher. Educated at Rhodes University, I honed my skills when I returned to my alma mater in 2013 to work as commissioning editor for the Rhodes Journalism Review. I also helped found RJR Alive, the magazine’s digital platform. After RJR, I worked at COVER Publications where I learned how to write about the insurance and financial services industry and above all, network. My job at Sunday Times Books LIVE has been the highlight of my career so far. I was an assistant editor and under the leadership of three excellent editors, I became a digital ninja of note.
Future Boss, check out my skills:
