Ilka Steyn

I have a BA (Hons) degree in Drama and Film studies – where I majored in: Creative Writing and Writing for the Media, Research, Acting, Voice and Directing. This was followed by a PGCE diploma (Senior and FET phase) in Arts and Languages.


My love for writing motivated me to take English and Afrikaans – as extra subjects – while finishing my degree at the University of Pretoria, South Africa. Understanding a language enables you to play like an artist with words like a painter will play with their paint.


My love for writing and creating grew stronger during my four years as a high school teacher and I’m now working full-time as a freelance writer, lecturer, and designer.


I created this digital world to share my stories and creativity, while offering the following services:

  • content writing,
  • scripts,
  • personalised poetry,
  • voice-overs,
  • video editing,
  • and designing of logos and invitations.
