Her poems have been published widely in journals and anthologies in Australia, UK and USA. She lives in Narrm/Melbourne. Roslyn Orlando is an artist, writer and gardener based in Melbourne on Wurundjeri Country. Her writing and artistic works explore relationships between language, history and technology. She studied Journalism at the University of Sydney, and Arts Politics at Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. Grace Yee is the author of Chinese Fish (Giramondo Publishing), shortlisted for the Victorian Premier's Literary Award for Poetry in 2024.
