I help expats and migrants write about their overseas experiences by taking the fear out of writing and journalling. Born in New Zealand, I set out on my O.E. (Overseas Experience) after graduating from university and loved it so much I decided to stay abroad. Since then, I’ve lived in 3 different countries and travelled to many others. Currently, home is Melbourne, Australia.
I’ve taught writing classes in schools, businesses, universities and online. During this time, I’ve worked with expats, migrants and international students from a wide range of cultures. As well as keeping a regular journal, I also write short fiction.
Something I’ve learnt from both my own writing practice and helping others is that writing can be intimidating and scary. But it doesn’t have to be! Journalling or freewriting is one of the most approachable and enjoyable ways you can start recording all those amazing experiences you’re having in your new country.
