As a professional, with two decades of experience, I’ve written a dozen books, as well as academic journal articles and conference papers, mostly for government departments. And I’ve written websites and flyers, CD-ROMs and newsletters, policy documents and curriculum materials, mostly in the field of education.
Actually, if you think about it, education offers a pretty vast and diverse playground to explore, bringing in neuroscience and all those curriculum areas about places and times and cultures. It invites you to think in all sorts of ways: like a scientist or a detective or, of course, a teacher. Which is a pretty good opportunity for a writer.
And I’m pleased to say that I’ve got some pretty happy clients, including the South Australian Department for Education and Child Development, Social Inclusion Board, the University of South Australia, Catholic Education of South Australia, Association of Independent Schools and Principals Australia Institute, to name just a few.
