Megan Hazlett

Freelance Writer and Video Producer

Location icon Australia

Writer. Researcher. Producer. Storyteller.

I am a multi-skilled media professional with more than 20 years experience across television and video production, print journalism, and online content creation.

I learnt the craft of storytelling over 18 years in television production at Australian Broadcasting Corporation working on factual and short form documentaries.

My favourite subjects are people who are passionate about what they do. Whatever that happens to be. However I am interested in many subjects including social issues, religion, community, and politics.

Helping people share their story is what I love most, it inspires me, and I hope inspires the reader or viewer too.
