Hi, my name is Lizzy Keen.

I'm a freelance journalist and copywriter who graduated from Griffith University with a Bachelor of Communications (Journalism and Spanish) and a Bachelor of Business (Marketing) in 2015. 

Through a lifelong love of reading and language, I've come to be a writer with a special interest in culture, travel and social politics. 

In the last three years, I've been a principal writer for, and contributor to, Zarraffa's Coffee Grind MagazinePindara Magazine, Blank GC, Independent Australia and Foam Symmetry, among others. I'm a regular contributor to Sunshine Coast-based travel and outdoor living magazine Frontier Journal, and international travel site Global Hobo

I also speak advanced-intermediate Spanish. 

When I'm not busy reading or highlighting impressive sentences, I'm surfing or practicing yoga. 

Check out my current travel blog, The Peanut Chronicles, which follows my yearlong trip halfway around the world, which started in Bali, Indonesia.
