Hi, I'm Katelin!

My writing has appeared in The Saturday Paper, The Age,  Overland, The Slow Canoe, Lip Mag, Tincture Journal, The Sydney Morning HeraldAward Winning Australian Writing, SBS Voices, and others. 

I have had two novel manuscripts shortlisted  for the Penguin Literary Prize (2020 and 2022).  I  won first place in the Rachel Funari Prize for Fiction in 2015 and have a degree in Professional and Creative Writing from Deakin University. In 2021 I won a highly competitive  Australian Society of Authors  mentorship. 

I like to explore the darker aspects of humanity, play with light and shade, and examine questions around identity, self, and the good and bad that exists within us all. I am interested in why people do the things they do, what motivates and drives them, and how people can end up in unexpected, messy situations. 

I love to handwrite and have recently taken to handwriting my manuscripts, a process that has been wonderfully refreshing and organic.  

Originally  from the Dandenong Ranges near Melbourne, I now live with my  husband  in Hobart, where we spend our time in nature, bush and beach walking. I  also love travelling, drinking tea, and reading.
