About Me

Lyn Dickens

I am a writer, editor, and academic living in South Australia. I am of mixed heritage, having Singaporean Peranakan Chinese and Anglo Celtic Australian ancestry.

My writing has been published in Australia, the USA, and the UK, and I am the Co-Founder and Managing Editor of the South Australian-based literary journal The Saltbush Review. I was a 2021 Write It Fellow with Penguin Random House, and a 2022 Editorial Mentee with Liminal and Writers SA. I am currently represented by Clare Forster at Curtis Brown Australia.

My writing has received a number of awards. I am currently completing a PhD in Creative Writing at the University of Adelaide and I am a member of the JM Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice. I have a previous doctorate in a different discipline from the University of Sydney and I spent a year of research at the University of Cambridge. I have taught creative writing, literature, and social sciences at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
