Alice Robinson

profile-alice-robinsonAlice is a writer of fiction, literary essays and reviews, and co-editor of Australian literary journal Southpaw. Her writing has appeared in print and online, including in Arena Magazine and Journal, Kill Your Darlings, Literary Minded and Text Journal.

Recently Alice branched out into audio, inspired by the wonderful world of podcasting. She is currently collaborating with a visual artist and a filmmaker, both from Melbourne, documenting their life stories.

Alice’s professional writing experience includes project work for Connex, and she was employed for several years as a writer of book notes for CAE’s Book Groups Program. Alice has taught in a variety of institutions both in Melbourne and overseas, and has lectured in the Bachelor of Writing and Publishing at Melbourne Polytechnic since 2009. In addition to teaching and lecturing, Alice has worked as a professional book and writing group facilitator for both Victoria University and the CAE.

After graduating from The University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Creative Arts, Alice embarked on a PhD by research at Victoria University. Her PhD consists of a novel and exegesis, which together explore attitudes to place and landscape in Australia. Specifically, Alice is interested in the way settler Australian cultures understand the Australian landscape, and the implications of those understandings for climate change.

At Melbourne Polytechnic and in addition to lecturing, Alice is responsible for running the department’s Guest Speaker Program, coordinating student internships, managing and editing From The Courses’ Mouth, BWaP’s audio journal and coordinating Time to Write, the department’s inaugural writing competition. All of which she greatly enjoys.
