Hello, I’m Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen: a Vietnamese-Australian writer and critic based in Naarm/Melbourne.

My writing has appeared in publications including The Saturday Paper, Meanjin, Kill Your Darlings, Good Weekend and frankie

I am an experienced public speaker and have appeared at festivals and events including Melbourne Writers Festival, National Young Writers’ Festival, Queerstories, Sydney Writers’ Festival and Women of Letters.

If you’d like to work together, or have a cool dog pic to show me, get in touch.
