Elizabeth Clinen

Deputy-Editor

Email: elizabeth.clinen@theaustraliatimes.com.au

I'm a mother, writer and editor currently located on the coast of Western Australia.Becoming a mother was perhaps the most inspiring, motivating event that has ever happened to me. I’ve been writing for years – writing my first thriller novel at 12 years of age – but after I gave birth to my son, my creativity skyrocketed. Now I am so fortunate to spend every day with my two favourite things: my son, and my writing.I write about anything that comes into my mind. I’ve written novels, novellas, poems, articles, blog posts, prose, songs, and the odd haiku. I write fiction and non-fiction, serious and humorous, science and spiritual. I love contrast (because I’m a Gemini).I adore the outdoors. Being close to nature grounds me in a way that nothing else does, and even though I’m the first to complain about the bugs, I secretly don’t mind them. One of my goals in life is to become a polyglot, and I'm starting with Russian. I love yoga, I am a voracious reader, and I do my best to choose happiness every day.

I hold a Bachelor of Environmental Science where I majored in Environmental Management and Biology from Macquarie University. I am currently completing a Masters in Bioethics from the University of Sydney focusing on clinical research and health law. I am interested in international affairs and peace, this encouraged me to join the UNAA peace program where I became the event coordinator since 2014. In this role, I became an integral part of the organisation and development of the international day of peace events such as salute to the sun and the synchronisation of ringing of peace bells worldwide. This not only gave me the opportunity to grow as an individual however helped me see that no matter where you are in this world, something can bring you closer to one another.

I’m born and bred in industry, held many rolls, and always striving to raises awareness and leave a lasting mark in the industry, I love so dearly. My journalism provides the platform, where I do my best work, and where I will leave my mark on the world.As a journalist and rodeo competitor, my copy bridges the gap between Australia’s hidden talents and promoting the best of the best on the world stage. My long term career is to highlight and support the under reported arena of strong rural families and community leaders in the sport of rodeo, and wider rural life. From my days working as a Jillaroo in the Northern Territory and on the plains of the California central coast, I know first hand the struggles and triumphs of women in the Rural world. Even as a competitor, through my days of schooling, through my days at Burdekin Agricultural College, and all in between including completing my degree in Multi Media Journalism at James Cook University. Having competed and worked under many strong influences (Both Equine, Cattle, Photography and Journalism) I aspire to be at the top of the Journalistic world, that tells the stories of hardship and victory of those silent many.I aim to be recognized on the same level as Kendra Santos, a woman who incorporates all that can be achieved in the western and sports lifestyles. I only hope to follow in her footsteps and become as great as she is and be the Journalist that the Rodeo and Rural world look to, to tell their stories here in Australia and around the world

Originally from London, Brittany Stewart is a freelance journalist who has had an unhealthy obsession with fashion and beauty since she picked up her first Vogue aged 10. (She’s come a long way from those cargo pants and lip smackers wearing days though!) A firm believer that any day wearing lipstick will be a good one, she’s constantly searching for the perfect red shade, as well as ways to battle the frizz that comes with having curly hair. Brittany loves to make herself the guinea pig to try new products, has no self-control when it comes to sales and will (proudly!) never say no to dessert.
