Writer. Copy Writer.

Professionally, I’ve worked at The Edge, Malaysia’s leading financial weekly where I first wrote for the business desk for a year before moving on to the award-winning luxury lifestyle section, Options. While there, I worked in a close-knit group, gaining valuable journalism experience in a smorgasbord of lifestyle areas including fashion, art, food, alcohol, travel, and even cars. I also wrote for the publication’s interior design magazine, haven, which profiled stylish abodes and their equally fascinating owners.

At the moment, I am based in Columbus, OH and freelance outside my permanent job at an online entity. My works have appeared in For Connoisseurs (a Malaysian bi-monthly focused on luxury lifestyle news), BACCARAT Malaysia (a Malaysian magazine also focused on luxury lifestyle news), and myStarjob.com (a web portal that caters to the needs of job seekers and those looking for ideas on how to excel professionally).

Besides developing engaging creative content that captivates readers, I am also adept at working with companies to engineer long and short copy for specific goals, be it to persuade the reader in making retail choices or educating them on a certain matter. Words truly are remarkable in their power to educate, as well as to compel emotion and action.

I am currently available for freelance work. Feel free to browse through some of my published work within the portfolio section to gain a better insight into my writing style. For information on rates or to view more writing samples, please email joanne.nayagam@gmail.com.

 The one thing you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can. The moment that you feel that just possibly you are walking down the street naked…that’s the moment that you may be starting to get it right,” – Neil Gaiman
