Hi! My name’s Hilary, and I’m a Melbourne-based writer, copywriter and editor. You have landed on my website because you either consulted the internet oracle called Google or got a personal referral. You are also probably completely awesome, and most likely very good looking.
I provide a wide range of writing, copywriting and editing services to brands, businesses, agencies, studios and organisations. I pride myself on writing clear and persuasive copy that resonates with people. I believe writing is a whole lot more than pretty words on a page – it’s a way to engage, inspire, educate and entertain. I set out to make people think and get under the hood of how they feel.
As a writer, my work has appeared in The Urban List, BuzzFeed, Books+Publishing, Broadsheet, FlypChart, Crikey, Forbes Travel Guide, Time Out, Junkee, Concrete Playground, Readings, Quickflix, HiP Paris, Mamamia, Women’s Health & Fitness and SPOOK.
As a copywriter, I have developed copy for Fabio Ongarato Design, Digital360, Tundra Interactive, East Eleven, Malthouse Theatre, RMIT University, SANE Australia, DealCorp, iBuildNew, Deakin University, Blogger Sidekick, Brands Exclusive, Melbourne Convention Bureau, The Jacky Winter Group, FlypChart, BeinArt Gallery, Tess Follett Photography, So Gouda, DDG Digital, SkinnyMint Teatox, Beauro App and The Fox Darkroom & Gallery. I’ve written content for property developers, theatre companies, the legal sector, national universities, financial advisors, tourism boards, small start-ups, online retailers, art galleries, phone apps and mental health charities. I’ve even written daily horoscopes – and yep, I made them up completely.
As an editor, I have worked with published and unpublished authors on structural edits to their writing as well as professional manuscript assessments. I have corrected manuscripts in the secondary and higher education market and also edited several published books.
Whether you have a website that needs compelling copy, an in-house marketing project that requires a content producer, or a personal writing project that could use a bit of editorial polish, I would love to hear from you. Write to me describing your project in as much detail as possible, and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
