remythequill is a hub of creativity created by Rémy Ngamije, who went missing in the world of full stops, commas, and photography. It is assumed, but not confirmed, that he is still sane and competent for most things in life. remythequill is a place of this and that, that and this.
As much as this site strives for creativity it is also a thing of relaxation, a place where words and thoughts are traded freely and ideas are put into some sort of cohesive pattern the rest of the world can understand. It is a haven of writing, journalism, photography, graphic design, social commentary and fragments of thoughts not yet completed…

By day, Sarah Koopman is the Features Editor of Marie Claire South Africa. Because writing and generally being awesome with words is not considered proper employment in these times, she makes ends meet by tweeting and part-time superheroining (I am pretty sure that’s a word) when the sun sets. The correct pronunciation of her name is “Sar-aaah” and not Sarah as in “Cera”. Noting that difference, my friend, is what’s kept me alive this long.
