Rivqa Rafael is a freelance editor and writer based in Sydney. She started writing speculative fiction well before earning degrees in science and writing, although they have probably helped. Her editorial specialties are health and science in all forms (magazines, books, academia and custom publications); she also writes reviews and articles.
Previous gigs include sub-editor and reviews editor for Cosmos magazine, assistant editor at the Medical Journal of Australia, and online zookeeper for musicians Tim Rogers and You Am I. She has a science degree with honours in microbiology, a master’s degree in professional writing, and a graduate diploma of editing and publishing. Her full CV is available on LinkedIn.
