Hello, I am Eimear.
I have been a Media Journalist, Photographer and Marketing Specialist for the last 16 years, and worked in media roles, corporate roles and freelance roles in the UK, Ireland and Australia for medium to large scale companies. I have also operated my own small business for nearly 9 years.
Red Dirt Blog has taken shape as a project for me to write about my passions and to grow my portfolio as I freelance, write, take pictures and travel. I also help other people in business by writing copy for them, assisting them to create "buzz" for their business, and helping to share their personal stories.
I live close to Melbourne, in the Gippsland Strezlecki Ranges with my family and we grow yummy food in the glorious red volcanic dirt.
As a Journalist and writer, it is my job to highlight businesses and individuals through storytelling.
If finding the right words to say about yourself and your business is causing worriment, then as a writer of copy for over 16 years, I can help you craft the right message that you can send out into the world.
Writing copy is individual and a unique pursuit, so every piece crafted is tailored to your needs, whether you are a personality, or business team.
The standard hourly rate is $95 per hour, although can any one project be described as standard?
All projects are quoted and priced individually to suit each creative project. As an MEAA (Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance) accredited member of the press, you are ensured to have a high quality professional journalist with public liability and well established media networks.
An hourly rate is established for one-off items. For bigger projects that include intensive writing work, 5-hour "tasking blocks" of time are available at a competitive rates.
