My name is Leigh Briar, I am a writer and poet currently based in Adelaide, Australia, undertaking my final year of the Bachelor of Creative Arts in Creative Writing at Flinders University, where I have met the greatest mentors of my emerging career. I have been published primarily in student newspapers and local community publications. I also produce zines exploring the relationship between emotional healing and the written word. I can also be found frequenting the local spoken word poetry scene.

I live and work on Kaurna land and I pay my respects to the land’s first storytellers, Elders past, present, and emerging, and to all First Nations communities whose sovereignty of land was never ceded.


If you’ll excuse the pun, I’m an open book! You can reach me via email at or via any of my social media accounts at @leighbriarbooks
