Fiona Wright

Fiona Wright is an author, poet, editor and critic from Sydney. Her book of essays Small Acts of Disappearance won the 2016 Kibble Award and the Queensland Literary Award for non-fiction. In it she explores the question of hunger generally, and the realities of eating disorders specifically. Along the way she touches on travel, family, and literary history. Her poetry collections are Knuckled, which won the 2012 Dame Mary Gilmore Award, and Domestic Interior (Giramondo, 2017), and her new essay collection is forthcoming from Giramondo this year. An intensely personal writer, Wright nevertheless produces work that is tied deeply to literature and society. This author is presented as part of the Australian Writers Week 2018, supported by the Australian Embassy, Beijing and the Australian Copyright Agency limited.
