*LIN IS CURRENTLY ON MATERNITY LEAVE*
I'm a writer with more than 15 years' experience in journalism and communications work.
Check out my incredibly diverse portfolio of published press releases, LinkedIn profiles, articles, blogs, website content, corporate copy, colour profiles and more.
My style is clean, crisp and engaging. I make words sparkle - bringing your project alive in a unique way.
You will be assured of quality, attention to detail, flexibility and fantastic communication throughout your project - with results from the heart.
Oh, and three things I love: Deadlines. Creative collaboration. Polishing your prose to perfection.
While I can pretty much write anything, I am particularly passionate about start ups and entrepreneurial dreams, alternative lifestyles, sustainability, travel, spirituality and biographies.
