Here is a rundown of how much I made #freelancing in 2021, why I think it is important to talk about it and why I think it shows how we need to fight for better rates of pay and conditions for freelancers.

These guidelines sit under the Code of Ethics but are not as binding & exist to help people avoid errors that cause harm & distress in their reporting.

Many thanks to the LGBTQIA+ community groups, organisations, MEAA delegates & members who contributed to & worked on this.

Over the last six months of 2021, @creatrixtiara and I livestreamed & played our way through @capcom's Great Ace Attorney Chronicles.

We managed to export some of the on-stream hilarity to Youtube in a playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_50ln02HEGxeLVeILEoEGAFneqno-EwO

Stay tuned for more Ace Attorney related streams and projects in 2022! Next up should be either a palate cleanser small game or Apollo Justice!

Here is the latest story I wrote about the ways in which people are supporting, informing and vaccinating people who use drugs against COVID-19.

COVID-19 restrictions/lockdowns and related job loss/the lack of stability may mean they have minimal income, ability or mobility to access healthcare and vaccination if they need to travel to do so.

My sources tell me very cool stories.

Journalist, editor & author

I first got published at 17, I have written news for major publications in two countries, worked in broadcast news, have edited award winning authors and have just won a writing fellowship myself. I have been writing since I was 9 and I am always keen to help others tell a story whether it is in book or article or video or audio form.

So now I run a business doing just that. I offer mentoring and speaking services, I help people edit both books and other documents, I sometimes run websites or interview people, I write news stories and edit audio and video content and I work on writing short stories and books of my own. I have a website but if you live on Facebook, this page is where you get to see everything I do. I am also on Instagram, Twitter and if you like the convenience of email, I do have a mailing list too. And I also have a cat. Called Trouble. She is rather cute.
