Australian freelance writers

Australian freelancers

Freelancing is a tough gig but it’s one worth pursuing if you want (or need) to manage your time in a way that sits outside the 9 to 5 norm.

On the upside, you are free to follow your interests, have full control – and responsibility for – your schedule and business administration, and you can work from home.

It takes dedication, tenacity and a hefty dose of creative entrepreneurialism to make it work, something that I am fast learning on my own journey.

I know some exceptional people who have forged successful careers in this realm, often on the side of a full-time gig, blogging, writing books and looking after children.

I have put together a list of some of Australia’s best and hardest working freelancers to help PRs and potential clients find them more easily.

I have also shamelessly included my own venture, Readable, because I have learnt that there is no point being shy if you want to get ahead in this game.

To download this list, complete with email addresses, click here. I have also included my PR and digital marketing friends as well (see tabs at the bottom of the sheet) so check that out too if you need help on that front.
