Sophie Byrne Dubnium adelaide

Sophie is an emerging arts administrator based in Adelaide. She is currently the festival coordinator for the National Young Writers’ festival and works at Radio Adelaide and Port Adelaide based arts organisation Vitalstatistix. Sophie has volunteered for as many festivals as possible, including Womadelaide, the Adelaide Film Festival and the Adelaide Festival of Ideas and has worked as an assistant for Adelaide Writers’ Week. You can hear her on Radio Adelaide’s Streetcast and at performances of Adelaide’s premier sad song choir Choral Grief.

Max Cooper adelaide dubnium

Max is both here and queer. He studies English and Classical Literature, watches possibly too much TV, and has boundless affection for a good style guide. He writes poetry, short fiction, and essays (both for uni and publication).


Ann Jackson adelaide young editors

Ann is an emerging writer ready to take flight, much like an overly hopeful penguin. A second year uni student studying Japanese and Chinese, she tries to fit the occasional English word between all those impossibly complicated characters. She writes across a range of genres, including fantasy, children’s fiction, and poetry, and enjoys making her characters suffer. Every so often she thinks she’s written something decent, and shows it to her family, who hastily assure her she’s mistaken. She likes feeding ducks, op shopping, and talking about herself in third person.
