Hello, I’m Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen: a Vietnamese-Australian writer based in Melbourne, and a recipient of The Wheeler Centre’s inaugural Next Chapter grant for 2018-2019.

My writing has appeared in publications including BuzzFeedfrankieJunkee, Kill Your Darlings and Meanjin, and I was a regular columnist for Daily Life throughout 2016.

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.

I am the Marketing & Communications Manager for Feminist Writers Festival, a volunteer at Sticky Institute and a bookseller at 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.
