About Charlotte Harper

Charlotte is Consulting Editor to the RiotACT team. She was Editor from September 2015 till March 2017 and Editor-at-Large from March 2017 till July 2017, when she took up an editing position in the Federal public service.
Charlotte was born in Canberra and went to school and uni here while working as a waitress, notetaker for disabled students, ad sales rep and campus reporter for ANU student paper Woroni and intern to Bronwyn Bishop back when Bronwyn was considered a potential PM. That was a long time ago, and Charlotte's political views have changed many times over since, much as Bronwyn's political fortunes have, really.
One thing Charlotte hasn't changed her mind about is Canberra. She left for a decade but always knew she'd be back so her kids could ride their bikes around the lake, play backyard cricket and splash around at Manuka Pool growing up.
Charlotte began her journalism career as technology writer and went on to become a (shared) Walkley Award-winning web producer (for her contribution to The Sydney Morning Herald’s online coverage of the 2000 Olympics), literary editor of The South China Morning Post in Hong Kong and later publisher of Management Today magazine. At The Canberra Times, she was variously chief sub-editor, features, online editor, and editor of firstly the Saturday news features section and then the Sunday magazine.
In 2012, she founded digital first book publishing business Editia, for which she won a Walkley Grant for Innovation in Journalism in 2015.
Charlotte holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Editing and Publishing from Macquarie University. Her own book, Weird Wild Web, was published in 1999.
