The freelance life

A  former newspaper editorjournalistchildren’s curriculum writer and magazine editor, I’ve had a varied career in writing. Not to mention being a Family Day Care mother, a playgroup facilitator, a reception temp, administrative assistant, government administrative officer, marketing and media coordinator … I must be a glutton for punishment! In 2011, I decided my busy life needed more balance, so I set up a part-time freelancing business from home.

Although I work part time at an arts centre, I also do freelance writing, editing and publicity. At the moment, my main freelancing work is with Aligator Media, where I am a senior public relations consultant. I have worked for Aligator Media since 2012. Our clients mainly work in the arts (theatre, music, circus, books and burlesque).

My preference is to work with arts clients and I am available for the following:

  • Copy-editing and proofreading;

I am currently directing all enquiries regarding the following to Aligator Media:

  • Press releases – preparation and distribution to a range of editorial contacts across traditional media, online media and social media;
  • Publicity/promotion campaigns including media release distribution and follow up, arranging interviews and photo shoots, social media;
  • Web content editing.
