Yen-Rong Wong

Yen-Rong Wong

Yen-Rong is an arts critic and award-winning writer based between Yugambeh and Jaggera and Turrbal lands. She won the Glendower Award for an Emerging Queensland Writer in 2022 and the Queensland Premier's Young Publishers and Writers Award in 2020. Her work has appeared in many print and online publications, including The Guardian, Meanjin, The Sydney Review of Books, and Griffith Review. Me, Her, Us (UQP) is her debut work of non-fiction. 

David Goodwin

David Goodwin

David Goodwin is the author of Servo, a side-splitting and darkly mesmeric memoir of six long years of weekend graveyard shifts in service stations across Melbourne's wild west. He is, thankfully, no longer a day-sleeper with a halogen tan, but still maintains a ruinous predilection for vodka-spiked slurpees and sausage rolls with too much tomato sauce.

Madeleine Gray

Madeleine Gray

Madeleine Gray is a writer and critic from Sydney. She has written for Overland, the Guardian, BBC, The Monthly, Sydney Review of Books, and other publications. In 2019 she was a CA-SRB Emerging Critic, and in 2021 she was a finalist for the Pascall Prize for Arts Criticism. She has an MSt in English from the University of Oxford and is a current doctoral candidate at the University of Manchester. Green Dot is her first novel. 

Naima Brown

Naima Brown

Naima Brown holds degrees in Middle Eastern Studies, Anthropology and Religious Studies. Her non-fiction has appeared in Vogue Australia, the Guardian Australia, and more. She has spent over a decade working in news, current affairs and documentary - save for her brief stint in reality TV, which inspired this novel. She was born and raised in Northern California before living and working in Yemen and Afghanistan, and now lives in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales with her husband and her dog. Naima, alongside Melissa Doyle, is the co-author of How to Age Against the Machine: An Empowering Guide for Women Ageing on Their Own Terms. The Shot is her first novel.

Lauren Sherritt

Lauren Sherritt

Lauren Sherritt is a storyteller whose work spans theatre, podcasts, narrative non-fiction and digital campaigns. She was a resident at The Ethics Centre in 2023-24, exploring the ethics of having children in a world in crisis. In 2020, she was commissioned to co-write eco-feminist play Rising, which was produced by Playlab Theatre and premiered at Metro Arts in 2021. She has produced podcasts and had writing published by Junkee, Writing Queensland, Story City, Australian Stage and the Australian Theatre for Young People.
