Thank you for taking the time to read through my application.
In December 2011, my family and I moved to Canada from Australia for a 24 month secondment with my husband’s work, previous to this I worked as an HR professional with a side passion for writing and opinionated descriptive prose. Since being in Canada, and writing a daily journal on what life is like here, what it is like as a new mum (I have an 8 month old) and sending home ‘travel’ journals to family and friends, I have discovered that my passion for expressing emotion, sight and opinions on paper has increased to the point where I want to pursue a writing career.
Family and friends have recently commented on the ability I have to ‘enable the reader to be there with me’ and to write in a way that reflects my thoughts and emotions with humour and detail. It is as a result of such support and my love for writing, that I today express my desire to work in writing set pieces, routine articles, blogs, reports or anything that you feel I would be best suited for.
The following is a list of subjects that I am both experienced and eager to write about:
I have lived in Japan, England, Italy, Germany, Australia and now Canada and am experienced in writing about living in these areas or travelling to them. I have travelled extensively and can also write well on how to travel, what to plan for and cultures.
In addition, I love to travel and would be happy to do so for new articles or specific research.
• Human Resources (in any capacity – academic or as an opinion)
• Motherhood and Marriage (advise, light hearted prose, experiences etc)
• Wine and Food
My personality is one that seeks constant challenge and development and as such, this list is by no means limited and I would be greatly interested in any writing contract that might be available and suitable.
I have a fully equipped home office here in Vancouver, the ability to start immediately and the enthusiasm and time to be able to be a success with you.
If you need any further information from me, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.
