Hello & Welcome!

Thanks so much for finding your way here. I'm Elaine, a freelance writer and editor. I'm from London, currently based in Tasmania, and very fortunate to work with clients globally.

 

After floating around the internet for a while, I decided to create this eclectic portfolio and home for my words. 

I think this is the part where I attempt to fit myself into some neat little boxes, so you know exactly what it is I do, but I learnt a long time ago boxes don't work for me.

 

I enjoy taking surface-level ideas apart and going straight for the heart of nuance, offering up different ways of thinking and talking about commonplace concepts. Consider me a mixologist of all the things that make us human, serving up the word cocktails that might help you make a little more sense of it all.

 

My writing interests cover health and well-being, positive psychology, creative living, modern culture, literature, and how we learn from our lived experiences to become more authentic versions of ourselves.

I work as a content specialist across the education and psychology space to help my clients get key messages out to their audiences in ways that are personable, actionable and energetic. I love taking high-end academic research and distilling it down into a piece of content any reader can grab hold of and say "Aha, I get it!"

Here, you'll find a selection of my writing for various media, alongside a collection of my dabbles in fiction writing.

 

I write for myself because I enjoy it, and I write for others because they keep asking me to.

 

And that's pretty much the gist of it.

Where to from here?
