About Me

Emily Jarvie headshot

[April 2018] I am a political journalist based in Hobart, Tasmania.

As a full-time reporter at the political bureau of The Examiner and The Advocate newspapers, I currently cover state and federal politics, court, crime, events and other news.

I have previously worked as a freelance reporter in Europe, writing articles across the continent in countries such as Belgium, the United Kingdom, Poland and Iceland.

I have published articles in established European media such as New Eastern Europe and Magasinet Europa (in Danish).


  • Bachelor of Arts with a double major in Journalism, Media and Communications and Geography from the University of Tasmania, Australia
  • Honours Certificate from the University of Applied Sciences in Utrecht, the Netherlands
  • Bachelor of Journalism from the Danish School of Media and Journalism in Aarhus, Denmark

I love to travel, read and (of course) write.
