Journalist. Editor. Copywriter.
Bloody good storyteller.
Everyone has a story.
Any story can have the power to change minds, and even transform lives, if it's crafted with skill, care and a depth of experience.
I've been telling stories for decades. Mostly other people's (unless you count an entire sub-genre my partner dubs 'The Steve Stories') across a variety of publications, categories and media.
Trained in the school of journalistic hard knocks, I learned the art of grafting facts and crafting words from the dogged reporters and cynical sub-editors at some of Australia's best-known publications.
Since 2016, I've been a freelance writer and/or editor for hire, working with a fascinating array of media and corporate clients to illuminate their triumphs and struggles with warmth, sensitivity and respect.
Let's discuss how we might work together to tell YOUR story.
What's a Steve Story? Pour me a couple of fingers of a very fine Scotch (no ice!) one day, and I just might tell you ...
How much will it cost?
How long is a piece of string? Nope, I don't know either. That's why I don't offer set pricing.
Instead, let's discuss how I can make your life easy by matching your needs with the fairest possible quotation and schedule for delivery.
(All pricing includes up to two rounds of consolidated feedback - in case any minor updates are needed.)
