Meg Dunley

I am a Melbourne writer who spends a lot of time with my head in a book in imagined worlds, knitting and creating art, plodding around the garden and hanging out with my family and my dog. 

I manage a high school’s communications and marketing as well as the library where I love chatting with the students about what they’re reading and why they love it. I freelance as a journalist, editor, website builder and content writer, and am a member of Writers Victoria, Australian Society of Authors, Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the Fellowship of Australian Writers. I facilitated creative writing groups in Melton, Kensington and Caroline Springs from 2016 to 2018 until I took on full time work in the school.

After completing the RMIT Associate Degree in Professional Writing and Editing, I attended a five-day novel writing masterclass with Antoni Jach and have attended many workshops Writers Victoria and other writers’ centres. 

I have a few other manuscripts (young adult, picture book and contemporary fiction) in the bottom drawer and am working on a contemporary fiction that is The Office meets Bridget Jones Diary meets a school library. I am currently pitching a historical fiction based on a First Fleet ancestor and her daughter.

I am a member of Writers Victoria, Australian Society of Authors, Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Institute of Professional Editors Limited and the Society of Women Writers Victoria. I participate in improvised comedy to add play in my life and am a part of highly committed writing group who regularly attend writing retreats and provide critical feedback to each other.

PUBLICATIONS:

My writing is published in “Shaping the Fractured Self: poetry of chronic illness and pain” (UWA Publishing, 2017), Victorian Writer, two Grieve Anthologies (Hunter Writers Centre), Flash Fiction Journal and Frayed Anthology (Clover Press).

AWARDS: 

My writing was shortlisted for Visible Ink, the Maurice Saxby Creative Development Program and Memoir Magazine #MeToo Trigger Warning Non-Fiction Contest. In 2016, I received the Second Prize in the Port Phillip Reconciliation Writing Competition for a short story On the Binns. In 2018, I was awarded the Judy Duffy Award on completion of the RMIT Associate Degree in Professional Writing and Editing.
