Select Project to Invite
I am a television producer with over 8 years of experience. I am a communications specialist with an eye for creativity and detail. In my career, I have worked as Head of Features in a leading news organisation. The electronic medium has given me the chance to work on several genres and formats. From lifestyle features, to social and political documentaries, investigative shows, to biographies, debates and discussions and news features I have a wide range of experience in television programming. As a writer, I have two assisted two first time writers ghost-write their books. I have also edited academic essays for students applying to foreign universities. In 2012, I worked briefly for a news & current affairs website as a Consulting Editor. I also teach Communications are a professional training institute in Noida. I am a blogger and I have a personal blog called The Little Things That Matter where I talk about my books and views of the world. I also have a parenting blog called On-board the Mommyship. I also contribute to Parentous, a growing community for parents in India. I am passionate about parenting and enjoy reading and writing about kids, child care, parenting, education, activities and learning. I can be found on Twitter as WordsmithsDesk, I can also be found on Google +, Instagram and Pinterest. Last year I formed The Wordsmith as a brand that allows me to market my services as a freelancer and content service provider. As a firm, we offer content services both written and visual to clients. From web content, to blogs, newsletters, brochures to visual content like corporate films, training films and video blogs, we offer a range of services. The Wordsmith is a creative firm that involves mothers from creative fields and engages them in projects that suit them. Please find attached a small brief about us. The Wordsmith is a unique set up that works with mostly work-at-home mothers in the creative fields. Motherhood is a trying phase for all of us, and as much as we would like to stay connected with our creative and earning avatars, we are often made to give it all up. Since inception, we have worked on a few yet very satisfying projects. We have worked with a leading Market Research company as their Content Partner for a period of six months. Our role was to write qualitative research based articles on a monthly basis. Besides company brochures, we have also written web content for two companies. We have directed two training videos; one for an education firm and another corporate film for a professional training institute. We now handle the company blog of a soon-to-be-launched wellness website. As content partners, we work closely with the client in understanding his needs and create timely, high quality content that suits one’s business and brand. The Wordsmith works on a collaborative model where you can think of us as a bunch of freelancers who come together for a certain project. Mostly we work as individuals and sometimes together if the project requires. As a writer and editor at The Wordsmith, I enjoy being on both sides of the fence. I actively write for various projects and edit that which is written by my WAHM friends. In my spare time I am a voracious reader, a rookie fiction writer, social media enthusiast and a mother who is constantly blowing thought bubbles creating activities to keep her son busy!
