Hello, my name is Hannah Irwin.

I am a freelance writer, content creator, researcher, and creative based in Sydney, Australia, graduating from Macquarie University with a BA (Hons I) in 2012.

With previous experience in writing for both academic and other media publications, I have spent the past several years as a postgraduate student and working as a casual university tutor in the disciplines of Media, Cultural Studies, International Relations, and Advertising.

I am now looking for new freelance writing projects.

If you would like to work with me, please head to the Contact page.

Also, feel free to check out my blog following my journey as a ‘slashie’ creative, updated every fortnight.
