ESSAYS, OPINION PIECES + INTERVIEWS


I have a keen interest in the modern zeitgeist, particularly feminism and sustainable fashion. Always seeking opportunities to engage with the English lexicon, I write copy as part of my job and compose various musings for my blog, in my spare time. I was also recently published in Fashion Journal.

SHORT STORIES


Growing up I always had a book in my hand and a story on the boil. I received a Mary Durack young writers award, in 1999, for one of my short stories. Recently, as a way of reacquainting myself with fiction writing, I have been entering short story competitions. Adhering to strict deadlines and word limits, coupled with prescribed genres previously foreign to me, has felt really rewarding.

Narrative is a device we use every day, often without realising. Storytelling is a vehicle for our thoughts and experiences, as well as our feelings and desires. Stories are the receipts of our past. They also allow us to upholster ourselves in the fabric of other people’s lives — lives we would never have otherwise ‘lived’ — enabling us to develop deeper empathy: a vital part of what makes us human.
