A ZIPPING GOOD TIME

About Amelia Norman

Amelia Norman spent a large proportion of her childhood travelling the world, and vividly remembers complaining about it much of the way: there was the eyebrow-raising tantrum in the Montreux market at age 3; the defiant disrobing in Bath (note: not in the bath), aged 4; falling asleep in a plate of Bangkok noodles, aged 8; and the disgusted indignation that only a 15-year-old can muster at "yet another boring glacier" in Alaska.

But somewhere along the way, she inadvertantly swallowed the travel bug...

Whilst travelling took some time to grow on her, writing has always appealed. After leaving school, working as an au pair in Switzerland and living in Sydney for a year, Amelia finally decided to enrol in a Bachelor of Media Arts (Communication) and the National Diploma in Journalism at Hamilton's Waikato Institute of Technology. During her studies she had work published in several local newspapers and was presented the Doris Henry/ESU Award for excellence in writing (2002) and the Waikato Times Award for excellence in journalism (2003).

Thus far, Amelia's career has seen her interviewing Kiwi musicians as a university publications editor; discussing milk solids per litre with North Island farmers as a rural journalist; making fantastic coffee in a bagel shop as a foraying freelance writer; and learning everything there is to know about exterior cladding as a writer for Homestyle Magazine.

Now, (finally) Amelia is successfully combining her passions for travel and writing as content editor of www.fourcorners.co.nz.
