Published Works

My name is Kevin Hawkins and these are my attempts to squirm into the media industry.

I’m currently one of four editors of Farrago (Melbourne Uni’s student newspaper) and a film reviewer for Film Blerg. Before becoming an editor, I volunteered with Farrago as both a sub-editor and a columnist. I have also worked as Live Below the Line‘s national media director (as part of Oaktree), and written freelance for a number of online and print publications. In 2013, I completed my Bachelor of Med (otherwise known as Arts – Media and Communications) at the University of Melbourne.

Below is a list of organisations that have published my work (last updated October 2012)
