Hi! I’m Ara Jansen and I’m a freelance writer, journalist and communications expert.
I love words. I love how they sound and how they roll around on your tongue. When we work together – which I hope we will – it’s my job to help make you, your ideas and your business look great. I’m an excellent conversationalist, know how to listen and have an innate curiosity that helps me get to the heart of the things which matter to you. If you can’t find the words, I can.
My extensive portfolio of published works in newspapers and magazines ranges from recognisable names and icons through to farmers, weekend swimmers, clothing designers, doctors, ice hockey players and academics. Each one has a story to tell and I’ve loved discovering them.
Working with businesses, I’ve written millions of words for a variety of industries including music, television, local councils and state government, building and construction, real estate, agriculture, oil and gas, self-help and social trends. Writing consistently has taught me to write like an expert, even with very little background on a subject.
All those words have been usefully employed in different ways including for media releases, speeches, blogs, website copy, annual reports, stories, band bios, documentary scripts and social media posts.
So, if you’re stuck for a word or 10, let me know and I’ll give you some of mine. Then, if you want me to help spread the word too, I’ll put on my communications and publicity hat.
