ABOUT Ambra Sancin
I’m a Sydney-based communications professional and freelance writer.
In a previous life I was a marketing manager/public programs curator for major cultural agencies including Sydney Film Festival, Screen Australia, NSW Writers’ Centre, Spanish Film Festival and Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts. For two years, I’ve been a regular contributor to the NRMA’s ‘Living Well Navigator‘ site, writing about a carer’s life and aged care issues, as well as garden inspiration, Italian recipes and travel.
Born in Trieste, northern Italy but whisked away to Australia as a baby, I have a special interest in working with culturally and linguistically diverse audiences, especially the Italian community.
‘The Good the Bad and the Italian’ is a collection of anecdotes and observations on things Italian including food, films, folklore, culinary history and design – and what makes Italians tick. I also have a penchant for seeking out strange, vintage wares in my mother’s cupboards. This blog has inspired short stories that have been published in two memoir anthologies in 2015 and 2016.
I am available on a freelance basis for features writing, website content, copywriting and other interesting things. See my Pressfolio Online Resume for published stories.
