Hi, I’m Giselle. I’m a Vietnamese-Australian writer and critic, living and working on the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation in Naarm/Melbourne, via Eora/Sydney.

I write about arts and culture, and the way they intersect with politics and life. My work has been published widely in media and literary publications including The Age, The Guardian, Meanjin and Sydney Review of Books.

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.

I also work at a public library delivering programs to babies and toddlers. It is exactly as cute as it sounds.

The cat’s name is Garfunkel.
