Australian/American Laura Fulton is a novelist, memoirist, essayist and teacher. Born in the Mississippi delta region, she grew up in the Ozarks of Arkansas and now writes from Wurundjeri land.
A former columnist, staff writer, ghost writer and project writer, Laura has published commercial books and articles in the US, the UAE and Australia. Her creative and critical work has appeared in Swamp Writing, TEXT, Qualitative Inquiry, Antithesis and The Watershed Review. Her 2020 PhD explores how the adopted person may address issues of identity, origin and belonging through creative writing experimentation.
Laura’s interests include travel, watching stand-up comedy and live theatre, reading, writing and walking her little dog. Her work often considers themes of hope, strength, resilience, beauty within the mundane and the triumph of tiny heroes.
Laura is currently querying her debut novel Those Tiny Quiet Places, an imagined family history with elements of mystery, crime and magical realism in which a writer tormented by a story battles her demons, recounting her tempestuous family history in 1960s southern Arkansas. This Southern grit lit novel considers themes of separation, trauma and loss, how we cope with those issues, the ways we look forward and the ways we look back.
