Freelance Writing

A talented freelance writer and recent finalist in Navigator Paper’s ‘Around the World in Eighty Pages’ international travel writing contest, Katie can make your product, experience, or hotel come to life through fun and engaging writing. I am also open to freelance work or guest posts on other sites.

I have recently worked with Expat.com and MOVE Guides on creating Australian specific content, and am available for a range of long-term or short-term freelance projects.

Other recent work includes:

Why and How to Teach Abroad at Summer Camp, GoOverseas.com

Hotel Hotel, Canberra. Yes, Yes Please, Citizen Femme

Exploring Glow-Worm Grottos on New Zealand’s South Island, Budget Your Trip

Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, Globetrotter Guru

We are about two things here: helping expats and unusual and quirky Australian travel experiences. With the exchange rate strongly favoring the American dollar and low international airfares, there has never been a better time for Americans to travel to Australia. Whether coming over for a working holiday, relocation visa, or just for a holiday, travelers are keen to learn about Australia and make the most of their time here.

With a blog focusing on Sydney and Australian travel, and expat issues, as Katie is originally from the US and now residing in Sydney, most readers come from Australia, UK, and the US, and are either residing in Australia, or planning a move down under.

The Accidental Australian is featured on several high traffic expat websites, driving traffic from interested expats. With a rapidly growing social media following (Instagram followers have increased 40% in the past two months, and a 9% engagement level (well above the 3% average, as of March 2017), my followers are interested and avid social media users. As we continue to grow, The Accidental Australian is becoming a premium destination for unique travel ideas and expat planning. We also rank as #30 in the Top 100 Expat Blogs and Websites for Expatriates, and hope to climb higher up the list in 2018!

Who Do I Work With?

I am interested in honest and meaningful relationships that will benefit us both, a ‘quick dollar’ is not my endgame- rather, I want to provide my readers with information, ideas, and tips that will help them love Australia as much as I do, and will hopefully encourage them to check out your amazing business or product.

I’ll only recommend something I really enjoy myself, and I am always truthful with readers.
