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 digital and print publications including Sunday Life, The Age/The Sydney Morning Herald, delicious., Juice Daily, 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 tips and tricks I've picked up along the way. Thanks for stopping by!
