Who Is Scribe ?
Meet the rest of Scribe’s crazy-talented team.
“My favourite word is guacamole; it just sounds cute, you know? If I had a koala, a kitten or a puppy I’d name it that for sure. Great, now I want all three (and nachos).”
Meet Fatima. She fell for the magic of words at a young age. A profound love for reading kids’ books – the classics and more modern tales – transformed itself into a passion for writing (and making up pretty awesome stories for younger siblings at bed time!).
Today, Fatima‘s passion translates into, well, everything really – from social media content to website copy, press releases to media articles and everything in between. Fatima joined Scribe’s team after garnering experience working in a government PR office, a women’s empowerment NGO, and a private events company.
“The phrase I’m most likely to start a conversation with? ‘I recently read…’. I’m unashamedly addicted to reading copy of all kinds – which is a good thing. Every writer (and researcher) is first a reader.”
Deidre has over ten years of experience working on copy for print and, more recently, online. After she got her MA in Cultural & Media Studies, she entered the (sometimes) glamorous magazine industry. For many years, she worked for O, The Oprah Magazine in South Africa, starting as copy editor and eventually venturing into senior features writer and books editor roles. (Yes, she’s met the Queen of Talk, and a bunch of famous writers.) When she decided to go out on her own, she freelanced for several media houses – think Condé Nast, John Brown South Africa and Oxford University Press. When she’s not writing, she’s editing other people’s writing, appraising book manuscripts, lecturing in copywriting, studying the human mind… and practising the elusive art of cat whispering.
This could be you.
