Words are at the centre of my life.
I am getting braver at sharing my work. My short story, Fifty New Things, won second in the NZSA Graeme Lay short story competition. Two of my short stories were shortlisted in the 2021 NZSA Northland Short Story competition and one of my essays was shortlisted in the 2021 Zealandia Te Māra a Tāne Essay Prize in association with Headlands Literary Journal and Massey University.
I was a regular contributor at Extracurricular Magazine, worked in Editorial for NZ Soil & Health, a reviewer and features writer at Organic NZ magazine, columnist at The Washington Spark, and clocked seven years of blog content for NZ’s ethical job listing site, Do Good Jobs. I’ve had work in The Spinoff, Element magazine, Stuff, Organic Explorer, Communities Magazine, and the radical feminist journal Rain and Thunder back in the day. Take a look through my portfolio, or click here, here or here for some of my articles.
My paid day job as a not-for-profit professional /change maker is all encompassing at the moment, so I’m not taking any content writing jobs. The creative writing is on fire though.
Writing is how I make sense of the world.
