About Olivia


My name is Olivia O’Mahony, and words are my greatest passion. I’ve been writing and (and rewriting) since I could hold a pen.


After completing my international degree in English studies and anthropology, I began my professional training as a writer and copy editor fresh out of college, working as an intern with a top special interest magazine in New York City. From there, I eventually progressed to the role of the publication’s primary copy editor, and was soon trained into the world of social media management. Since then, I’ve worked on a large range of editorial projects, including blogs, feature pieces, travel writing, event writing, interviews, genealogical research pieces, and reviews. Businesses and organizations I’ve worked with include:

  • Alice in Città
  • Folklore Thursday
  • Fyxes.com
  • Heritage of Pride
  • Irish America Magazine
  • IrishCentral.com
  • Martha McGinn Training and Consultation
  • Shamrock Craic
  • The Shamrock Gift Company
  • Story Gem Copywriting

Additionally, I am a member in good standing with the International Association of Professional Writers and Editors.


Today, I remain based in New York, though I originally hail from Dublin, Ireland. Outside of Seabird Words, my interests include working on personal fiction projects, reading for pleasure, and folklore studies.
