About me

What makes me different
Portrait of Charlotte Pordage

Who am I?

 

My name is Charlotte. I was born in a small town on the south coast of England and am currently enjoying the bright city lights of Melbourne. I’m a country girl at heart though and when I’m not writing, I’m usually with my horse.

 

In 2011, I graduated from Royal Holloway, University of London, with joint honours in English and Latin. My degree gave me a sound basis in critical thinking, effective research and structuring an argument and a meticulous approach to grammar and punctuation.

 

I’ve also studied two courses in Australia: a Diploma in Interactive Digital Media in 2015 and a Certificate IV in Marketing and Communications the following year. While not as intensive as my degree, both these courses allowed me to learn about more specialised areas of content creation and improved my understanding of digital platforms.

What can I do for you?

 

You don’t just need a writer, you need a story-teller

 

Well-crafted stories create emotional resonance and human connection. They communicate abstract and complex ideas in ways that encourage understanding, introduce a new topics into the public dialogue, contribute to ongoing conversations and engage people as active participants. That’s where I come in. I’ve been writing stories for as long as I can remember (my mum refuses to throw away the evidence) and have been working as a media and communications professional since 2014.
