Lucy Alexander

Lucy is a practicing writer and poet. She is currently working on poetry, pursuing opportunities for two novel manuscripts, collaborating on a third with artist Paul Summerfield (which we currently think is YA), putting together a reworked kids picture book with artist Naomi Zouwer, researching her non-fiction book about dog names (which is under consideration with Allen and Unwin/ Murdoch Books), writing articles for City News on dog behaviour, mentoring students of writing, assessing manuscripts, applying for arts grants and fellowships, blogging and dipping into the brains of the Resident Writers.

And that’s just three days a week. On her other days she’s raising 4 kids and 15 pets.

Lucy Alexander is a resident of the Gorman Commons
