Kylie Hemsworth

Kylie Hemsworth’s love of writing was sparked by bedtime stories, and cemented when she wrote her first story, the adventures of a dragonXhorse space creature called Washamoon (if you missed this galactic saga, you didn’t miss much).

Kylie has been writing ever since – from tormented teen diaries to school newsletters; from performance poetry and short stories to policies, news articles and promotional materials. Her skills in persuasive writing were well honed in the competitive world of NFP volunteer recruitment and funding procurement. She particularly enjoys the challenge of taking complex or abstract concepts and making them tangible and accessible.

Most recently, Kylie has been writing and editing web content for the clients of Brand Illumination. Kylie has a knack for capturing brand ‘voice’ and blending that voice with her simple and fluid style to create intelligent content that engages and clearly communicates with its audience.
