I can offer experience and skills in many areas including short story writing and editing, blogging, travel writing and poetry. I offer a quick turnaround and a professional attitude - I want your project to succeed.
SHORT STORY WRITING
I enjoy writing realist literary fiction with a particular focus on the young adult market. I cover a wide range of subject matter including travelling, coming-of-age issues, friendship, family, death, campus life and mental health challenges.
A successful blogger myself, I know what it takes to build an audience. I can offer my guidance and my services as a guest blogger with youth-aimed articles, essays and rants covering a range of topics including writing, nursing, university life, fashion and pop culture.
I have lived in the U.S. and Switzerland, and have travelled all over Europe, Africa and Australia. I use this experience to provide human interest pieces which tie into the major issues relevant to the area.
Poetry I write is whimsical in nature, often giving voices to the most unlikely of characters.
WRITING / EDITING BACKGROUND
I am confident in editing any genre and have done so for a number of established authors. I run and participate in a critique group for Brisbane writers. I tutored English at a university level for 4 years and took a journalism course at the University of Queensland before shifting my focus to creative writing.
