Leigh Briar lives and writes on Kaurna land. Her current Honours thesis in creative writing explores the evolving representation of transgender narratives in YA fiction. In 2021 her short story “Entirely Perfect in (Almost) Every Way” was highly commended in the Feast Festival Short Story Competition. She also produces zines exploring the relationship between emotional healing and the written word.

Leigh lives and writes on Kaurna land and she pays her respects to the land’s first storytellers, Elders past, present, and emerging, and thanks them and all First Nations communities for their lands, which were never ceded, for their language, and for their culture.
