Madeleine Dore freelance writer interviewer content producer

Content strategist



I'm Madeleine Dore, a freelance writer, interviewer and content strategist based in Melbourne.   

Curious about how creativity is reflected in our daily lives, I founded the online interview project Extraordinary Routines sharing conversations with artists, writers, and entrepreneurs to better understand how we live.

Under the Extraordinary Routines banner, I have collaborated with esteemed publications, including a monthly column on Kill Your Darlings and previously a monthly series on Australia's biggest design blog, The Design Files.

Dedicated to communities that encourage entrepreneurial and artistic careers, in my previous role as deputy editor at ArtsHub I developed a strong focus on career advice and self-improvement, and such features continue to be the most read in the industry website's history. Today, I contribute a monthly column exploring creative self-help topics.

I'm a regular event host and live interviewer and recently founded the event series Side Project Sessions to help people create time and space to work on whatever they're putting off.
