I have always been passionate about reading, and have discovered a love of writing and editing through my Bachelor’s degree. The significance of A Drop of Ink is in the simplicity of the action. Just like a drop of paint on a painting, a drop of ink creates a change in the paper you are writing on; it will alter it for the better, or for the worse. If a single line or drop of ink causes people to stop and think about what you have written, then that simple action is no longer simple: it is unstoppable.
I am one of three editors of Verandah Journal; an annual publication that celebrates high-quality writing and artwork from contributors around the world. You can buy the journal here, and it will soon be available as an eBook.
I have written quite a few articles for The Australia Times Pets Magazine of which I am also the managing editor. I organise a team of contributors, a deputy and sub-editor, and a media and communications manager, to work to a monthly publication schedule.
I am currently an editorial intern at Busybird publishing. Aside from general office tasks, I have proofread and styled several manuscripts and am in the process of strengthening my editing skills with the help of the talented editorial team. I have written a blog on their website which you can view here.
Here are a few examples of my writing:
- The Snow Child: This first piece was written as a before & after to an already published short story entitled The Snow Child by Angela Carter.
- Between Mountains: The prompt for Between Mountains was to describe a place as an encounter.
