About

Roslyn Weaver

The values that drive me personally also direct my work ethic: integrity, honesty, and excellence

I’m a writer, editor, and researcher

A childhood immersed in books, libraries, and bookshops could lead nowhere else but a career working with words, whether in my freelance business The Writing Desk or my academic and commercial roles. I have more than 7 years of experience as a writer in consultancy, and over 10 years in academic writing, research and teaching, with a PhD in literature and postdoctoral fellowship in medical humanities.

Outside my usual employment, you’ll find me enjoying other creative pursuits, from music and ballet to photography (all images on this site are mine, except for the desk image), or exploring the outdoors, from cycling, historic properties and gardens to birding, hiking and countryside walks. I’m curious minded and love learning new things, and I’ve travelled extensively around the world and lived in four countries.

The Writing Desk is a registered business with the NSW Office of Fair Trading, ABN 95 816 174 649.
