Concrete Playground






As a freelance journalist for Concrete Playground Melbourne and Concrete Playground Sydney from 2010-2013, I wrote feature articles on a regular basis. These included theatre, film, food, drink and arts reviews as well as sponsored editorial about local entertainment, lifestyle and events. I pitched, developed and uploaded all my own articles, sourced and resized images as required, and helped maintain an internal database of national media contacts.
