I’d like to first kick off with a million thank yous and virtual hugs to everyone who read my last piece. I’m just a dork with a website, a blistering desire to avoid completing the third chapter of my Honours thesis, and at the time, with a whole bunch of feelings. You’ve all made this […]

Today was my second day at the Brisbane Writers Festival, and my third year working here as part of the team. I’d first attended four years ago, courtesy of a pair of tickets I’d won off Twitter from the ABC. I’ve always loved the atmosphere, the fact that I got to talk to other people […]
