Lee Smith writer Castlemaine

I’m Lee Smith, a writer based in Castlemaine in central Victoria.

I currently write, edit and design for the Australian Communications and Media Authority.

I’ve written and edited content for books, feature articles, and copy for local organisations. I’ve previously edited and typeset poetry and fiction titles for Salt Publishing, and published books for Windhorse Publications.
