hello.

Words. I write them. I fix them. I organise them. I love them.

Hello. I'm Samantha. I'm a professional print and digital editor and writer with a Bachelor of Arts (Writing and Media) from Macquarie University and more than 15 years' experience in publishing, marketing and corporate communications. I work as a writer, copyeditor and content specialist for magazines, creative agencies and government across a diverse range of subjects and disciplines. I'm a knowledgeable plain language and technical writer with experience in UX and CX content design. My editorial portfolio is particularly strong on food, including cookbooks and recipe editing, health and wellbeing, parenting, interior design and general women’s lifestyle.

I also work as an editor and mentor for non-fiction authors who would like to pursue both traditional and self-publishing pathways.
