I have recently published columns for a wide variety of South African publications including Fair Lady, The Daily Maverick, De Kat, The Witness, BizNews, The Big Issue South Africa and Eyewitness News.
As a freelance journalist in London I published columns for leading publications such as The Sunday Times, The Spectator, The Sunday Express and the Daily Mail.
I am also an experienced interviewer, having published a ten-year interview column at the Sunday Times in Johannesburg. I am able to provide the following writing services:
- Opinion columns
- Personality profiles
- Travel features
- Professional reviews (books, music, art)
My role as a public speaker began in the 1970s as a History of Art lecturer in Johannesburg. As a columnist at the Sunday Times I gave many talks discussing my career. I recently gave talks in support of my memoirs, Jani Confidential reflecting on the social, political and cultural context of apartheid South Africa. I commit myself fully to my role as an animals right advocate – a field I have been focusing on for the past two decades. I am also keen to inspire other women – to encourage them to escape the cycle of abuse that I survived during a tumultuous second marriage. I am available to provide talks in both the United States and South Africa. I have recently completed speaking engagements for the following clients:
- University of Johannesburg
- Cape Town Press Club
- Exclusive Books
- Great Park Synagogue, Johannesburg
- Adele Searll 100 Club, Mount Nelson Hotel
- Gorry Bowes-Taylor/Wordsworth literary lunch
- The Big Issue South Africa
