Creative Writer

My education is in English Literature and Philosophy, I was awarded my degree by Sydney University in 2018. I write in many different formats and have contributed to a wide range of projects, for which I have received consistently positive feedback. I began writing fiction, stage plays, and short screenplays at a young age. Many of of the screenplays I have written have won competitions and one has been made into a short film. Recent projects I have completed include: Several choose-your-own-adventure games. I devised the concepts, plots and dialogue for these games. One interesting part of this project is that it required me to create branching narratives and dialogues that ultimately reconnected into a consistent core storyline. For this project I wrote according a strict format that would instruct other creatives when special effects or images would need to be added to compliment the story. Short autobiographical stories for a project designed to highlight empathy and understanding across diverse communities. Short comedic scripts for a YouTube channel. These scripts centred around various video game characters, so I was required to do significant research in order to portray the characters in an informed way. A short story, based upon provided prompts, for an unnamed writing exercise project. Poetry for young children. The thirty poems I submitted were intended to be used as part of an audio project, hence engaging rhythm and rhyme was of upmost importance. I have also participated in transcribing the "Big History" course, run by Macquarie University, which extended over 12 weeks of lectures. I also proofread and edited subtitles submitted by other employees working on the project. This project in particular involved the use of obscure cosmological, historical and geographical terminology, necessitating significant research to ensure accuracy of transcription. Most of my previous experience to this has been in hospitality management. Though this is a field quite unconnected to creative writing or transcription, I believe that my work as a bar manager has demonstrated and strengthened many relevant skills. Strong people skills were essential as a bar manager, as I would be the primary point of liaison between the business owners, employees, customers and guest musicians. Organisational skills were necessary to managing stock, making rosters, hiring new employees and overseeing functions. These functions, in particular several weddings, also required me to take on significant responsibility as the business owners would not be present for such events. Finally, an ability to work under pressure was fundamental to my work due to the high volumes of customers and necessary multitasking of managerial duties. Hopefully, it should be apparent how these skills might be useful within certain projects involving creative writing or transcription.

"What a class experience working with Jem. He was responsive, listened to feedback well and made great observations to add value to the project. He is clearly very creative, caring about the quality of his work and the final deliverable was top notch. I would work with Jem again in an instant. Brilliant experience."
