Hello, I’m Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen: a Vietnamese-Australian writer and the Marketing & Communications Manager for the Feminist Writers Festival. I was born and raised in Sydney, and have called Melbourne home since 2012.
My writing on sex, mental health, pop culture and race has appeared in publications including BuzzFeed, frankie, Junkee, Kill Your Darlings and Vice, and I was a regular columnist for Daily Life throughout 2016. You can see my complete portfolio here.
I am an experienced public speaker and have appeared on festivals and events including Melbourne Writers Festival, National Young Writers’ Festival and Women of Letters. More on that here.
I volunteer at Sticky Institute on weekends and have a couple of day jobs (one as a copywriter, one as a bookseller at the world’s best bookshop, Readings). I like animals, vegan cooking, comics, cycling and inappropriate nap times.
If you’d like to work together, or have a cool dog pic to show me, get in touch.
