I’m Rebecca Douglas, an award-winning Australian writer whose fiction, essays, reviews and feature articles have been published by Overland journal, Tincture, Visible Ink, Frankie, MiNDFOOD, The Australian, The Sydney Morning Herald, SBS, the ABC and many others.
My fiction is mostly about fairness, feminism and the future and my non-fiction work has looked at everything from doomsday prepping to secret societies and futuristic fashion, along with other, slightly tamer, areas of enquiry.
I was a regular contributor to Yen magazine from 2015 until it closed in 2017 and have contributed articles and reviews to The Big Issue since 2015. My TV reviews have covered Tomorrow When the War Began, Jessica Jones, The Family Law, and Cleverman. My book reviews have included novels, memoirs and non-fiction books by authors such as Debra Oswald, Drusilla Modjeska and Tom Keneally.
I’ve appeared as a panellist at the Emerging Writers’ Festival and on various television and radio outlets as a commentator on an odd assortment of topics. In September 2014, I helped usher in the next crop of nerdy word herders by teaching the “Learn Digital Journalism” workshop at the SA Writers’ Centre teen boot camp.
When I’m not shuffling words around, you can find me feverishly entering competitions and checking the mailbox for prizes, fiddling with LEGO, and scouring Etsy for comically large costume jewellery.
