Michele Freelance Writer

Michele has been a freelance writer since 2000. She was a regular contributor to Eureka Street magazine for several years, and her features have appeared in The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian, The Courier Mail, and a range of magazines.

Michele is available for feature writing commissions. Profiles, biographies, interviews, and travel, are her specialty. Michele has also worked with individuals and businesses writing bios and blog posts.

As a freelance writer, Michele has long had a strong interest in personal human stories. She has also written on issues ranging from the genocide in Rwanda, restorative justice and HIV/AIDs, to the future of the Great Barrier Reef and the lost art of listening.

Michele’s skills interviewing and writing the stories and experiences of staff, contractors or fieldworkers have been used by businesses, government departments and social enterprises. She has a personable approach, and often uncovers insights and information that formal reports miss.
‘I don’t think we as a society recognise how valuable really listening to people can be,’ Michele says.

Michele’s article on the power of listening, appeared in The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Canberra Times, and led to ABC radio interviews across Australia.

Passion, justice, community and human spirit are central to her writing, her public speaking and her life.
