Know what you need to communicate, but can’t find the words? That’s where I come in.
I’m Rachel Alt and I help people and businesses find the words they need.
What experience do I have?
My Bachelor of Arts in Communication (Media) helped me gain access to the industry when I first started out.
To keep my skills current I’ve done a shed-load of courses in writing, editing, sub-editing, proofreading and PR in Sydney and London. Nothing says ‘I love editing’ like spending sweltering Sydney summer weekends in NSW Writers’ Centre learning proofreading marks!
As a total word nerd, I also completed a Master of Arts in Creative Non-Fiction.
I’ve worked as a freelance editor and sub-editor. My food and travel writing has been published in local and international press.
In addition to freelance work, I’ve been in corporate marketing, in-house communication and creative agency roles for twenty years. I’ve helped develop and sell creative copywriting solutions for a wide range of businesses – from credit cards to doughnuts, package holidays and soft drinks.
I’m based in Sydney, spend a lot of time in Byron Bay and a few months a year travelling. Oh, and I am addicted to Arnott’s Mint Slice biscuits and HBO’s ‘Outlander’.
