Hi, I am Helen Young,  I worked in academia for more than a decade before becoming a freelance writing and research consultant. In that time I worked as a Research Assistant and Officer, a Lecturer, and as a full-time researcher on my Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award. I taught academic and professional writing skills at The University of Sydney and the Australian Catholic University for several years.

I am experienced and successful in all genres of academic writing, including for nationally competitive funding schemes. I have published in leading academic journals in Cultural Studies, English, Education, and Nursing, and my most recent monograph was published by Routledge. I also publish in the media, including the Sydney Morning Herald and Canberra Times as well as The Conversation.

I have a PhD in English from The University of Sydney, and a Bachelor or Arts/Creative Arts from the University of Wollongong.
