FROM STORIES AND ARTICLES TO TRANSLATIONS, SUBSIDY PLANS AND POETRY
Copywriter and editor who knows how to 'wow' your story. To set it apart from others. I love research too. As a former journalist I like to dive in deep to provide the most constructive stories. I often write in English but I can handle a good Dutch story too.
CAUGHT IN TIME
Caught in Time gives a detailed overview of St.Maarten Intangible Cultural Heritage. From storytelling and folktales to island expressions, from the ponum dance to 'two sou' parties, from string bands to bottle neck music, from boat building to straw hat weaving and more, this research shows island heritage that is transmitted through tales. This book is based upon literature research and interviews with St. Maarten elders and is meant to preserve their stories, and much of the intangible heritage, for the island youth.
