Writing

That damn glow

During her career, Lauren has worked both as a freelance journalist and an in-house writer on various consumer and customer titles in South Africa and abroad, such as Men’s Health, the Mail and Guardian, Tank, Elle, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Visi, Elle Decoration and several others. Her area of interest is broad, but comes to rest within lifestyle, decor and design, showing a particular interest in the latter.

She is an award-winning journalist who has enjoyed over 17 years in publishing and still contributes regularly as a writer. Most recently, she was commissioned by Visi Magazine for its WDC2014 edition, and is working on a coffee table book for Clouds Estate.

Here’s a sample of a humorous Op Ed piece that deviates from her usual style, and which appeared in the South African edition of Elle in 2012, as part of the Female Factor series.
