Susan Bradley Smith

Associate Professor Creative Writing, Curtin University

Since beginning my professional writing life as a rock journalist in Sydney and London in the 1980s my work always been concerned with the Arts and social transformation. A cultural historian by training, I'm drawn to stories of women's literary lives, and tales of expatriation. As a creative writer I largely publish poetry and autoethnographical essays. I work at Curtin University, Australia, where I am Associate Professor in Creative Writing, and as Visiting Professor (Poetry) at John Cabot University, Rome.
