about jackie

Thanks for visiting my website. I hope you enjoy reading through my articles and if you’re looking for a freelance writer or editor, perhaps they’ll inspire you to get in touch.

As you can see from my portfolio, I have an extensive body of work covering wine, food, people and places. These articles have been collected over seven years working mostly for the fabulous Selector magazine. During this time I’ve had some amazing experiences, from meeting inspirational Australians to learning about what makes our wines so great, as well as visiting incredible destinations, all in the name of work.

On top of the personal satisfaction that comes from writing, it’s been a real boost to receive some external recognition. In 2008 I was named Writer of the Year at the Publishers Australia Bell Awards and the judges had this to say:

Jackie demonstrates a remarkable capacity to write in a variety of styles and she displays excellent research skills. More importantly, her writing is informative, entertaining and she engages well with the readership. The judges felt Jackie’s work was a real delight to read.

Then in 2010 I was awarded Best Drinks Journalist at the Le Cordon Bleu World Food Media Awards and in 2013 I won the Hunter Writers Centre travel writing competition.

If you’d like me to write or sub-edit for your magazine, newspaper or website, drop me a line through the Contact page, I’d love to hear from you.

But enough about me. What about this fantastic website? Kudos to the highly talented Kate Murray. You can see more of her beautiful designs and illustrations at paperdaisy.com.au Thanks Kate!
