Me 2019

Alison Hill

Freelance writer and editor

Location icon Australia

I love making words work and helping others to make their writing suit its purpose.

I have a degree in journalism and a postgraduate diploma in editing and publishing.

My publishing career spans close on 30 years in roles that include commissioning editor, subeditor, journalist, course writer, online content creator and print designer.

I work from my office in the beautiful Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia, although my first 40 years were spent in South Africa. On a clear day I can see the city over a sea of eucalypts.
