My Name is Mallory Arbour.
I’m a highly organised, self-motivated writer with over ten years of media experience, specialising in digital content with a keen interest in pop culture entertainment. I have a diploma in Professional Writing and Editing and a Bachelor of Communication (Journalism) from Deakin University.
I have interviewed some of the biggest local and international stars including film and television actors, award-winning musicians, musical theatre performers, comedians, bloggers and entertainers. In 2018, I was personally chosen as one of four Victorian journalists to interview legendary US music producer Shelby J.
I have attended various media calls, red carpets, concerts, festivals and pop culture conventions as a media representative. My photography and videography was featured on Channel 7’s The Morning Show and has been shared by Jon Stevens, Billy Ray Cyrus, Anthony Warlow and more.
I predominately publish on Countrytown (established 2020) and the AU Review, but have written for AU Arts and AU Abroad. I have previously designed for numerous Victorian print publications including The Herald Sun, Geelong Advertiser, Sunraysia Daily, The MX and more.
