Fury is a white, queer, non-binary (trans) writer based in Naarm/Melbourne, Australia. They reside predominantly on the land of the Kulin Nation and pay their respects to its elders.
Fury has been writing poetry since they were 12. After a brief but intense stint in Melbourne’s spoken word scene, they settled into journalism and queer advocacy. They have recently branched out into writing for screen. In 2019 they were offered one of the Film Victoria Neighbours placements where they tried in vain to make all the characters queer. They are interested in works that sit on the margins of genres including poems that hold their own both spoken and on page, costume-art and experimental journalism.
In 2016 they were awarded one of the Wheeler Centre’s Hot Desk Fellowships to work on a narrative suite of gothic poetry examining trauma, queerness and girlhood set in an all-girl school. They were also offered a place in the Besen Writers Workshop at the Malthouse Theatre. In 2017 they travelled to the U.S. to interview lesbian carers of the men who died of AIDS in the 80s, courtesy of the Kat Muscat Fellowship. In 2019 they launched their first book, an experimental graphic novel memoir called I Don’t Understand How Emotions Work. Towards the end of 2019 they completed a fine art residency with Arts Access and No Vacancy Gallery called Sitting. They were also offered a place on one of the Arts House Makeshift workshops as well as the Time_Place_Space residency.
If you are considering funding a project of theirs then consider it a sage investment for the future of the discipline. They are very good – creatively, but also as a person.
