Winsor Dobbin has been a professional journalist for over three decades, during which he has been based in cities as diverse as London, Paris, Johannesburg and Sydney.
A former sports writer and foreign correspondent – and briefly a consultant to the International Olympic Committee – he now writes about wine, food and travel for a range of national and international publications.
Winsor spends around half of each year on the road, visiting destinations ranging from China and Italy to Australian wine regions, and writes from his base in rural Tasmania.
Winsor has been writing professionally since high school and has worked as a news reporter, feature writer, sub-editor, chief sub-editor and now as a freelance copy writer.
His experience across many disciplines means his copy is always well-researched, grammatically correct and delivered on time.
He has been a full-time employee of companies including Associated Press and Reuters, the Sydney Sun-Herald and The Star in Johannesburg and has been published in the Los Angeles Times and The Guardian, as well as many international titles.
Winsor began as a sports writer, covering four World Cup football tournaments and multiple Olympic Games, and still retains a global knowledge of sport.
He now specialises in writing about travel, wine, food and lifestyle and also takes photographs and uses social media widely. He has almost 9,000 Twitter followers.
Winsor's day may seem him crafting magazine features, copy writing for state tourism organisations or sampling wines from around the world.
He believes that a misplaced apostrophe or an errant comma can detract from even the strongest message, so aims to provide quick, accurate words every time. Attention to details is the key.
