Edward Caruso

Poet, writer

I write prose (chief form, the novel) and poetry. I have occasionally read in the pub scene around Melbourne, but have scaled that back.
My favourite writers generally are European (Russian, French, Italian, German and Central Europe), but I do enjoy some of the Latin American and US writers that have come my way.
A lot of my writing is inspired by travel, as travel gives you the chance to see something new, as well as reflect on your own place in the world and on the world itself. I did a short course in web page design/journalism in Bologna, Italy, in 2002, so I contribute articles regularly to a web site run by the regional government of Emilia-Romagna.
This is a great way of reporting some of the cultural events in the Italian community here back to its country of origin. I have an Associate Diploma in Professional Writing and Editing from RMIT.
I have worked in publishing since 1993 as an editor and proofreader. I have been freelancing since 1996, and have worked for over a dozen publishing companies, in Melbourne, Sydney and Singapore.
I tend to work more in the academic field of publications, though the range of publications includes children’s books, biography, film, education and self help.
I am a member of the Society of Editors and am listed in its freelance register.
