know me


I was born in Melbourne but have given up claiming it as the reason I am genetically predisposed to being cool, and now claim Canberra as my home. I finished my Bachelor of Writing at the University of Canberra in 2014. I have also been on an exchange trip to Oxford University in the UK. I often get asked what I write but the nuisances of feminist politics and doomed relationships are not so easily summed up. But they are nevertheless, my undying focus. I can say that I write fiction and non-fiction but never poetry. My work has been published by the Capital Letters, Curio and Lip.

So what the hell have I done with myself?
