Bronwyn has a passion for linguistics and storytelling, and has loved writing since she was a little girl. She studied cinema and creative writing at the University of Sydney as well as the University of Melbourne, where she was the recipient of the H.B. Higgins Scholarship for Advanced Studies in Poetry and the Hannah Barry Memorial Award for Performing Arts. She is currently a PhD candidate at Flinders University in Adelaide.
Her poetry has been published in numerous publications, including Best Australian Poems, Australian Poetry Journal, Award Winning Australian Writing, Antipodes, Cordite Poetry Review, Australian Love Poems and The Global Poetry Anthology. Bronwyn has won the Adrien Abbott Poetry Prize (2013) and been shortlisted for the Newcastle Poetry Prize (2013), the Bridport Prize (2013) and the Montreal International Poetry Prize (2011).
She was a judge for the Magic Oxygen Literary Prize, a speaker at the Australian Youth Humanities Forum and has read at the Melbourne Writers Festival, the Bendigo Writers Festival, the Overload Poetry Festival, the Williamstown Literary Festival, La Mama Poetica and on ABC Radio National.
Bronwyn’s love of words has taken her to opposite ends of the country and the globe: from writing and editing children’s books in the UK, to living in remote communities in Cape York as a remedial literacy instructor for Aboriginal children, and interning at Poets House in New York City. She is now working on her first full-length publication — a science fiction verse novel set in space.
