About the Freelancer
jopenney Profile Picture

I've been a commercially and independently published writer since 1992. I worked as a copywriter in 1992, and have attained undergraduate degrees in Business, Legal Practice, Law (LLB), Professional Writing & Editing and hold two Graduate degrees in Professional Writing, and am currently completing my research degree as a Master of Arts (Writing & Literature) with a focus on memoir through Deakin University. I've worked as a freelance writer and editor, English tutor, ghostwriter and a life writing teacher at community college. The type of work I enjoy includes proofreading or editing (line, content or copy), as I have the privilege of reading the creations of other writers, which is always a privileged job to have. I also enjoy a job that challenges me to create something unexpected!
