Suzanne Carbone curates words as a creative writer for The Age spanning celebrity, fashion, TV, film, radio, entertainment, food, culture, trends, personal profiles and major events. Sometimes stories land on a silver platter: in 2010, she was at a private dinner in Toorak with surprise guest Oprah Winfrey and landed an exclusive. She previously wrote Postcode 3000, a column about Melbourne and its people, and sometimes encountered true royalty. She wrote about the 2012 royal visit by Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the Queen's visit in 2006 and Prince Charles’ visit in 2005. While covering the so-called red-carpet round, she has covered the AFI Awards, Logies, the Australian Open, the Brownlow Medal, the Allan Border Medal, the Australian Grand Prix, polo, the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games, and the Flemington quadrella: Derby Day, Cup Day, Oaks Day and Stakes Day. She is skilled at saying her name to pass through the velvet rope and juggling a notepad, pencil and mobile phone while wearing a lanyard and wristband.
