Fury is a white, settler-coloniser, queer, trans writer based in Melbourne, Australia. They reside predominantly on Wurundjeri land of the Kulin Nation and pay their respects to the elders past and present.
They have been writing poetry since they were 12 but in 2010 they started writing and competing in slam poetry. After becoming restless in that community, they returned to their roots as a page poet and have been developing works that sit on the margins of genres including poems that hold their own both spoken and on page, poetry-plays and experimental journalism.
In 2014 they toured with their mentor, ReVerse Butcher along the east coast of Australia for the enCoUNTers tour. 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 at an all-girl school. They were also offered a place in the Besen Writers Workshop at the Malthouse Theatre.
They are interested in exploring the way reality is constructed by language and, by extension, how both language and reality can be bent, broken and reformed through language use.
