Freelance writer helming Joyce Writes for the past seven years. I started at age six by selling fully-illustrated books for 50 cents to my neighbours, until they complained to my mother that I was harassing them.
I started as a fashion writer for Her World magazine upon graduation, keen to see whether it was like The Devil Wears Prada (It was.) Then I freelanced for a year for ad agencies, mostly specialising in copy for government agencies.
Curious for a taste of the corporate life, I took on the role of PR & Editorial Specialist for Robert Walters, a specialist recruitment firm with 51 offices in 23 countries. I covered seven markets: Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and Taiwan. I learnt a lot about the job market and sharpened my skills in corporate writing.
I currently specialise in travel writing, having written several features for Singapore Press Holdings Life section. I am looking to grow my travel and lifestyle portfolio so do contact me if you have anything interesting to offer.
