Jen Hutchison

When she’s not publisher and editor at Journeys to Words Publishing, Jen is completing a Master of Writing and Publishing at RMIT. She’s passionate about writing, writers and good reads and this little company is the fulfilment of a dream.

She has found her tribe. Along her journey to words, Jen has engaged with and learned her craft from some of the best writers and teachers on offer – Patti Miller, Anne Manne, Toni Jordan, Tracy O’Shaughnessy, Stuart Horwitz and Kate Ryan. They have become her mentors and friends.

Graeme Clifford

After a long and successful career in bean counting and project management for advertising companies and an ink factory, Graeme is directing financial traffic at Journeys to Words Publishing. He’s good at it too.

On occasion, he packs books and catches the mailman. He aspires to grey-nomading around Australia, but, so far, his wife has him too busy to leave town.
