Hello! I’m Chloe, a freelance writer and editor, working and living in Naarm, Melbourne, on Wurundjeri land. Welcome to my online CV.
Currently, I’m a contract writer for Toot Sweet Consulting. I’ve previously been a copyeditor and transcriptionist for Ascension magazine, an editor of content and engagement for Equiem, and an editor at Melbourne Books and of the annual fiction and poetry anthology Award Winning Australian Writing. I was designer, editor and mentor for the Year 10 magazine production class at St Michael’s Grammar School, and an active committee member at Voiceworks magazine, where I mentored writers under the age of twenty-five.
My writing history covers fiction, non-fiction and poetry, and I’ve had work published and won prizes across these genres. I’m often writing down things friends have said, and I have several notebooks full of narrative-based dreams I’ve recorded over the years.
I’ve always enjoyed learning new skills, in particular the ins-and-outs of Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere Pro and Word. In my leisure time I attend literary events and volunteer — I’m a frequent attendee at the National Young Writers’ Festival and the Melbourne Writers Festival, a volunteer social media manager, photographer and filmographer at High Street Bells Choir, and a volunteer copyeditor and proofreader at Greyhound Rescue Victoria.
While an introvert at heart, I know the importance of effective communication. Get in touch and let’s have a chat.
