Damien J O’Meara

I’m a Melbourne-based writer and communications adviser with almost a decade of experience across the community, government and education sectors.

I hold a Bachelor of Communications (PR) from Griffith University and a Master of Arts (writing) from Swinburne University. I have worked as a Communications Manager, Copywriter, and a Media and Parliamentary Adviser.

In 2018, I am working to complete my first manuscript in YA fiction. Please see my blog for updates.

Currently I am working on extended contract as a communications adviser, coordinating major campaigns for a government department. I also work as an eLearning Adviser (eLA) for Swinburne Online teaching communications and academic writing subjects.

I volunteer as the Marketing and PR Manager for the GLOBE Community Awards, recognising excellence in Victoria’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex communities. In 2017, we raised over $30,000 for LGBTI community grants.

My experience across various sectors has seen me engage all levels of stakeholders, and I’m comfortable to work with your plans, aspirations and ideas to do everything from writing blog posts and articles that share your distinct voice, to telling the stories of your diverse and amazing workforce. I’ve worked with culturally diverse communities around Australia and love to help elevate their voices and share their stories.
