Hi, I'm Alix – editor, writer, author and all-round boss lady at Edited Away, where I offer online writing classes, editing workshops, mentoring and more.
So, why learn from me? There are stacks of good reasons (and here are three of them...)
- I've been in the publishing industry for 16 years as an editor/deputy editor/fashion & beauty editor/features editor/chief subeditor/freelance writer for some of the country's biggest and best-known titles (think Cosmopolitan, Cleo, Dolly, Hello May, Who, OK!, Woman's Day, New Idea, Famous, Body + Soul, Escape, MindFood, Notebook, Harper's Bazaar, 10Daily... And the rest).
- I've also written countless SEO and lifestyle articles for some major Aussie brands and outlets, and continue to create content and edit for several big-name clients, including Dymocks, NIB, Simon & Schuster, Innoxa, Oz Hair & Beauty, In Essence, Restated Vintage, Sheike, James Lane...
- I've ghostwritten and edited four books (including a couple that have made bestseller lists). Book a class and I might accidentally let slip who I've written for (shhh...)
Basically, I know my stuff when it comes to writing and editing.
Whether you're a writer looking brush up your skills, an aspiring editor who needs to learn the ropes (or brush up on the basics), or just someone who likes to put pen to paper (literal or proverbial) but isn't sure where to start – I'm your gal. Book in now and let's journey together!
