Sienna Barton graduated from the BA in Creative Writing at RMIT in 2014, following a six year stint at a Catholic high school.
Her interests in writing include: literary theory and studies, memoir, and feminist philosophy.
This year she wants to apply philosophical theories to popular works of fiction. Susan Sontag once wrote: ‘The interpreter, without actually erasing or rewriting the text, is altering it.’ This is a big idea that Sienna is interested in.
Outside of academia, Sienna is interested in drawing and making collages inspired by Matisse. Her dog’s name is Scout.
