My name is Thessa Lageman, and I'm an experienced Dutch Freelance Journalist, Copywriter and Writer of Content Marketing Stories. I'm also an Arabist, which means that I studied Arabic languages and cultures.
I write captivating stories in Dutch and English for various publications, such as business and trade magazines and international media. Examples of my clients: The Guardian, Al Jazeera English, BBC, the European Commission, Facebook, Amnesty International. Here are some more examples of the business and organisations I work for.
I can write about nearly anything, but often deal with social topics, such as sustainability and environmental issues, circular economy, social enterprises, international development, human rights, poverty and migration. I also regularly write about health, education, science, travel and technology.
I also edit Dutch texts, translate from English to Dutch and regularly take photos.
Before I start writing an article, I explore the topic thoroughly, look for refreshing angles and ask the right questions. I use a clear structure and the language that fits your audience. I write the content in a way that the audience likes to continue reading until the end. Because of my experience, it's easy to work with me, I follow briefings closely, but also contribute ideas, I'm flexible and, of course, I never miss a deadline.
I'm based in The Hague, the Netherlands, and work from my coworking space in the centre or at home, 5 minutes by foot from the beach. I also regularly travel to other parts of the world and lived in Tunisia, Kuwait and Egypt as well.
Just send me a message -- email@example.com -- and we can see if, how and when we can work together.
