Melody Newell completed her Bachelor of Arts (Creative Writing) at RMIT University. In her final year she majored in nonfiction poetry and explored the ways poetry can interact with different artistic mediums. This year she hopes to expand on these ideas and push at current perceptions of poetics. She is particularly interested in space and gender and the connections between the two.
She is the founder and editor of Dear Everybody (IG: @deareverybodycollective), a creative collective facilitating collaboration and creative exchange between artists and writers.
