Written stories

Amanda Place Amanda Place writes stories about people and their passions. She specialises in revealing and then conveying the compelling yarn every person has to tell. As a journalist, Amanda has covered major health and medical research stories for 30 years including Australia’s first IVF baby; the first heart/lung transplants and the successful separation of con-joined twins. Amanda was also a feature writer at The Age for 16 years when she wrote a health feature each week as well as two columns The Two of Us and Our Place. She is the author of A life well lived – A decade of palliative care. This book explored the experiences and reflections of people who were in their last weeks or days of life. It was the first book of its type, with a uniquely Australian perspective, exploring thoughts on death and dying. Families coming to terms with palliative care have used it extensively over the last five years. Amanda has won several awards including a UN Peace Prize for a story on multiculturalism, the European School of Oncology International Media Award and the Australasian Reporting Award for St Vincent’s Health’s 2008 annual report.
