I embraced the freelance life four years ago and I now write mainly health stories for Melbourne's The Saturday Paper. These have included world-first breakthroughs as well as insights into harrowing illnesses impacting on often silent sufferers.
While social media has its place I still believe in balanced articles that focus on facts rather than biased emotion. I enjoy gathering a range of voices in my articles and crafting a structure that carries the reader to the end. Some people have great ideas but few skills in communicating those ideas. I also enjoy de-constructing their copy and improving the structure and flow.
