About

cropped-10428630_755948167828540_2727420437776188864_n.jpgFury is a white, queer, non-binary (trans) writer based in Naarm/Melbourne, Australia. They reside predominantly on Wurundjeri land of the Kulin Nation and pay their respects to the elders past and present.

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 playwriting and writing for screen. They are interested in works that sit on the margins of genres including poems that hold their own both spoken and on page, poetry-plays and experimental journalism.

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 2018 they have been their first book, an experimental graphic novel memoir called I Don’t Understand How Emotions Work.
