My passion for writing hit me like a hammer in 2004 so I completed two writing subjects as a fee paying student at Charles Sturt University. The following year I enrolled at Southern Cross University by correspondence to begin completing an Associate Degree of Arts (Writing).
During my first year of correspondence study I had my first published poem featured in FourW. And according to a professional lyric evaluation of my work; lyric writing also proved to be a strength I quickly developed during 2005.
Creative writing endeavours sparked my interest for copywriting. This personal interest created my pathway toward copywriting as a profession that I still think of as being fun, challenging and fascinating.
In 2006 I completed the Associate Degree of Arts (Writing) and my ability to write copy was noted in a letter to me from a manager of marketing and tourism for my brochure copy. The letter reflected my rapid development as a copywriter, a quote from this letter is featured on my Testimonials page.
Later on in 2006 I became co-writer (lyricist) for a track that was placed as an Honorable Mention in the international songwriting contest Song of the Year and I was signed to a music publisher. This track was mixed and mastered by a producer who has worked on highly commercialised albums in Australia.
Since 2007 and beyond I’ve completed a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in Writing and used my skills to assist businesses by editing and writing web copy for websites and online sales letters. Individuals have also benefited from my tertiary skills, usually through my ability to help them write resumes and reach short lists for management positions.
My future will involve building my business portfolio to further improve my writing skills and excel on a professional level to benefit clients. And my services may eventually expand to include production of jingles so my songwriting skills can benefit customers that require jingles for radio and television commercials.
I also aim to assist customers by referring them to business associates who specialise in website services that go beyond my own and extend to web development services and technical services. By providing a pathway to customers who require web designs, I am able to provide a broader array of expertise for those requiring all the services associated with the production of website and online advertising.
