Hi, my name is Lizzy Keen.

I'm a freelance journalist and copywriter who graduated from Griffith University Gold Coast with a Bachelor of Communications (Journalism and Spanish Studies) 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 social politics and travel. 

Since graduating, I've been a principal writer for, and contributor to, Zarraffa's Coffee Grind MagazinePindara Magazine, Blank GC and Independent Australia, among others. I'm a regular writer for the 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.
