PhD Student, Curtin University

I'm a PhD student researching how children think about linguistic choices in writing and how to encourage them to apply grammar in creative ways for effect. My Masters thesis examined how children experience creative writing in the classroom. I currently work as a Literacy Specialist at a school in Hong Kong.
