TRICIA DEARBORN’s poetry has been widely published in literary journals in Australia, overseas and online, and is represented in anthologies including Contemporary Australian Poetry, Australian Poetry since 1788 and The Best Australian Poems. She has been an invited reader and panellist at many events, including the Newcastle Writers’ Festival, the Queensland Poetry Festival and the Sydney Writers’ Festival, and is on the editorial board of Plumwood Mountain, an online journal of ecopoetry and ecopoetics. Her third poetry collection, Autobiochemistry – completed with the support of an Australia Council grant and a Residential Fellowship at Varuna – is forthcoming from UWA Publishing in 2019.
