Hervey Bay freelance writer Matt Moore smiling and wearing a Where's Wally shirt.

I hold a degree in creative and critical writing from USQ and have experience writing everything from professional copy to more casual works of fact and fiction. I’m also a seasoned researcher and understand journalistic style and practice.

Music, health, and humour are my interests, but I’m a versatile writer and can adapt my tone, style, and content to suit the occasion. Working with a diverse range of clients has accustomed me to researching, understanding, and writing with authority about a variety of subjects.

I’m currently a staff writer at MakeUseOf.com, a contributor at KnowTechie.com, and an author coach at DeanPublishing.com.

I grew up in Tasmania, where everyone’s proud of how cold it is, but I now live in Queensland, where everyone’s proud of how hot it is. The seaside city of Hervey Bay on the Fraser Coast is my current home base.

Storytelling is my true passion, and I frequently write fiction between jobs. Someday, I hope to produce a novel worthy of publication.

Feel free to contact me with any project proposals.
