Frances Whiting

Frances Whiting

Frances Whiting loves words. As one of Australia's most respected journalists, Fran writes award winning, long form features, and was recently the recipient of the prestigious Clarion Award for Outstanding Contribution to Journalism. As Australia's longest running, nationally syndicated columnist, her weekly column has been going for 26 years, not out. As an author she has penned two best sellers, Walking on Trampolines and The Best Kind of Beautiful, currently optioned for an eight part television series. She is an outstanding interviewer, and regularly hosts the Brisbane City Council's Writers in Residence series. When she is not doing all of the above, you will find her with her nose in a book.
