Work Experience Summary: I have had more than 20 years' experience in journalism. As a sub-editor/chief sub-editor, I honed editing, rewriting and page-design skills on daily newspapers and magazines.
On magazines, I dealt with a range of topics, including agriculture, country life, home decor and diverse African youth culture.
