Content producer

Madeleine Dore


I'm a freelance writer, interviewer and content producer 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 to live creatively.

Under the Extraordinary Routines banner, I regularly collaborate with esteemed publications, including a monthly column on Kill Your Darlings, a bi-monthly profile for Audrey Daybook, 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 articles exploring creative living, productivity, psychology, self-care, and more. Such features continue to be the most read in the industry website's history, and I contribute a monthly column for the site. 

My writing for editorial publications including Sunday Life, Womankind, Slow, Yen, 99u, and BBC Capital regularly explore the latest in philosophy, psychology and productivity research. 

I'm regularly an event host, panel chair and live interviewer and was an inaugural board member of Creative Women's Circle.
