Fiona Wright


Fiona Wright is a writer, editor, and critic from Sydney. She aims to “provide a counterpoint” to the way the issues of eating disorders and mental illness are generally expressed: “How we think about them, and the empathy that is at the heart of reading and writing is a powerful agent for change.”

Her book of essays, Small Acts of Disappearance won the 2016 Kibble Award and the Queensland Literary Award for non-fiction, and was shortlisted for the Stella Prize and the NSW Premier’s Douglas Stewart Award. Her poetry collection, Knuckled won the 2012 Dame Mary Gilmore Award. She has recently completed a PhD at Western Sydney University’s Writing & Society Research Centre.
