Want a quick overview of what I’ll be up to this year? Here’s what is happening:
Still writing weekly at The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age newspapers. You’ll mostly find my work in the My Career section (inside Business) where I’m continuing with my monthly Meet the Boss column. I also have a new fortnightly column in My Career called Side Hustle. I’m still writing features here most weeks too – it’s hard for me to keep up with examples but check here for a peek, or follow me on Facebook.
Last year we jetted to Malaysia and Singapore, plus recently came back from Bali. You’ll see stories on all of that appearing in my portfolio pages this year. In 2019 we have Europe coming up: stories are currently being pitched, planned and commissioned.
Back to the small people: my Facebook community for family travel, Kids Who Travel, is getting bigger by the day. And my Babies Who Travel website, with swags of tips for travel with the under one crowd, is still helping families through their earliest days of family travel.
My media training business, Media Bootcamp, a collaboration with fellow journalist (and now bestselling author) Ginger Gorman, now has a number of repeat clients and we’ve trained everyone from entrepreneurs and fashionistas to government employees, CEOs and board members. We’ve been busy! (Don’t forget – we run these trainings Australia wide so if you need us, let us know.)
Large and small copywriting projects are offered via my boutique copywriting agency, The Comms Collective. The Comms Collective is an authorised supplier to 56 government agencies (the government parlance is “we are on the panel”), so 2019 will be big.
I’m doing a lot of this. I’ve delivered my tailored group trainings across the country for corporates and government departments. Plus, you’ll find my private mentoring for writers here, and travel writing and feature writing courses via the Australian Writers’ Centre here.
Behind the microphone:
I’ve spent a lot of time over the last few years being interviewed, mostly about travel. I’m the travel expert on ABC Evenings with Chris Bath – if you want to catch these chats, I post some of them on my press page.
