Journalism, media writing, feature writing and the Walkley Awards (Media and communication)
I am a tutor and lecturer in Media and Communication, specialising in the writing subjects. I also teach with Dr Margaret Simons in the Centre for Advancing Journalism's Master of Journalism foundation subject, "Researching and Writing Stories". In addition to this I am editorial assistant on The Citizen, the online publication for the Master of Journalism students. I am presently undertaking a PhD into the Walkley award winning feature stories from 1988 to the present and exploring notions of quality and how these stories can be seen to be contributing to a larger conversation about democracy and public life in Australia.
