Hi, I’m Giselle. I’m a writer, journalist and critic, living and working on the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation in Naarm/Melbourne. I was born and raised on Dharug land, where my parents resettled as Vietnamese refugees.

I write about the intersections between arts, culture, politics and life. My work has been published widely in both media and literary publications in Australia.

I was an inaugural recipient of The Wheeler Centre’s Next Chapter fellowship in 2018, a fiction judge for the 2021 Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards and the commissioning editor at Feminist Writers Festival from 2018 to 2020.

The cat’s name is Garfunkel.
