Journalism

Travel, adventures, literature, environment… Jesse’s freelance stories and photographs have followed the trail of the first women to reach Antarctica, camel journeys in the Tunisian Sahara, humpback whale researchers in Queensland - and plenty in between. She won the 2012 Guy Morrison Prize for Literary Journalism for her essay The First Woman and the Last Dog in Antarctica and she’s been published in Australian Geographic, Womankind, Outback, Wellbeing, Goodreading and others.
