Sarah Rose McKenzie
I'm a bi-fierce writer, poet and book blogger based in Wollongong, New South Wales. I love reading and writing about queer identities, radical women and community advocacy. I’m also partial to herbal tea, misty oceans and rabbit cuddles.
In 2016, I studied Honours in Creative Writing, specialising in queer Australian Young Adult (YA) fiction (known as Aus YA or Oz YA). Drawing on my own experiences, I wrote a novella and thesis about growing up bi in coastal Australia.
This website is a space where I share my published stories, poems and articles. It’s also a platform for celebrating diverse Aus YA. In my book blog, I publish sporadic reviews of Aus YA stories that I think are unusual and inspiring.
