As a freelance writer, journalist, travel writer and writing coach, with twenty years experience under my belt, there are now numerous ways you can work with me.
Freelance writer and journalist:
My main role is working as a freelance writer for major newspapers, magazines and online publications. If you’d like me to write for your publication, please get in touch.
I love my work as a regular presenter at the Australian Writers’ Centre, where I teach writing for magazines and newspapers. I also tutor participants from across the globe in the online version of this course. In addition, I developed and teach on the Centre’s five-week travel writing course. I often teach the course face-to-face in Sydney, as well as tutoring in the online version of the course – great if you are a travel writer-to-be living overseas or interstate.
To book into feature writing or travel writing with me or one of the Centre’s other presenters, please contact Australian Writers’ Centre direct. For testimonials about my teaching at the Australian Writers’ Centre, read the reviews here.
I’ve now been a full-time journalist and freelance writer for ten years – prior to that I spent ten years as a communications specialist. The combination means my copywriting skills are in demand by many businesses. Before you hire me as a copywriter, you might like to check out a list of my recent clients.
You asked for two years, it’s finally here! My mentoring program for feature writers and travel writers is now open. If you haven’t done one of the courses at the Australian Writers’ Centre, don’t be surprised if I recommend that you do, because I still think it’s the the most efficient, cost effective way to learn a whole bunch of important tasks. But mentoring can help you streamline your skills. Is mentoring for you?
I also offer training for those who want to learn how to improve their writing skills at work. Learn more about this.
When my schedule allows, I take on selected speaking engagements. Typically, these are focused around my areas of expertise and interest (travel – especially family travel, environment, wellbeing, careers and productivity). I also MC on panels from time to time.
Past examples include my role as an MC for the City of Sydney’s Urban Gardening forum; as facilitator on the City of Sydney’s Green Up Your Life series (which I also designed); and an annual presentation advising the Centre for Sustainability Leadership’s current participants on how to work with the media.
