Hire me!

Need some writing done? If you’re looking for writing with character and a bit of class, you’ll like me. If you want a cheap hack job, please go somewhere else.

What I can do: 

Speeches

Press releases

Marketing/sales copy such as brochures

Website copy

Feature articles

I also coach: 

Am able to train or teach children (5 and up), students (primary, secondary and tertiary) and working adults in basic vocal theory, business writing, creative writing, feature writing.

What not to hire me for:

White papers

Academic papers or your thesis (write your own!). I can proofread it, though.

My bylines have appeared in:

PC.com, The Star, Malaysiakini, Free Malaysia Today, The Malaysian Insider, Blorge.com.

Writing samples:

Though I started my professional career as a writer covering technology, the piece that I’ll probably be remembered for is an opinion piece I wrote for political news site Malaysiakini:

Why is your Allah not my Allah?

Blorge.com : I was a former blogger with them until I joined tech PR. Conflict of interests stopped that collaboration.

RovinGeek : A site created by friends of mine, which has been defunct for awhile due to real life intrusions.

Other stuff I wrote for Malaysiakini (subscription-needed):

For better or worse, Happy Birthday Malaysia

Sept 16: No cure for being shortchanged

Speak, Umno Youth is listening

I am also a peforming arts practitioner having appeared in:

Amir Muhammad’s The Big Durian as Dania Mulok

    Erna you have extensive skills and experiences. Why not go E Commerce in Malaysia selling your soft skills and knowledge. The brains have left Malaysia long ago and Malaysians need such skills and there is a hungry market for these skills and knowledge
