About me

Hi! I'm Lindy. 

In 2016 I started wondering if I could make a full time income from freelance writing.

I had been writing on a part time basis for five years after taking an online course focusing on feature writing for magazines and newspaper at The Australian Writers' Centre. Within a week of finishing the course, I had an article commissioned.

I was hooked. I was getting paid to do what I loved. 

Over the past five years my work has been published regularly in numerous Australian and international digital and print publications including Sunday Life, The Age/The Sydney Morning Herald, The Guardian, delicious., The Saturday Paper, Aspire, SBS Life, Dumbo Feather, Peppermint, Essential Kids, Essential Baby, Jetstar magazine, Homes+ and more.

This year I decided to stop wondering if I could freelance full time. The Freelancer's Year is an exploration into my first year of full time freelance writing - I've got interviews with seasoned freelancers, editors and content marketing managers, as well as heaps of strategies to help other freelance writers or journalists write what they love and earn what they're worth.

Thanks for stopping by!
