Dr. Rosie Kerin established WriteMe in 2012 when she left her university career to become a freelance writer, teacher and consultant.
Her 15-year career as a teacher of English, and as a curriculum and school leader, spanned middle, secondary and senior secondary schools in South Australia.
While a literacy consultant for Catholic Education South Australia, Rosie completed her doctoral research exploring the changing practices and identities of mid-career English teachers as they mastered and integrated digital technologies within their professional contexts.
Between 2006 to 2016, she taught English and Literacy courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels at the University of South Australia and Griffith University. Her teaching and research interests include the ever-changing scope and field of English teaching, particularly in relation to the integration of evolving texts and digital technologies.
Rosie loves written language and the visual arts, and has a passion for creative writing, reading and film.
