A blend of fiction and fact guides my work.
I’m fascinated with stories that are experienced and linked to the places where these stories are set, no matter how magnificent or mundane.
My fiction and non-fiction has been published and won awards, and I’ve received grants, residencies and commissions for my Locative Literature projects to be presented across Australia and overseas. I’ve also been an invited guest to speak at the Melbourne Writers’ Festival, the Emerging Writers’ Festival, National Young Writers’ Festival, Digital Writers’ Festival and if:book Australia, as well as presenting Locative Literature workshops across Australia.
