Emily Brewin

Emily Brewin is a Melbourne-based writer and educator who grew up in Victoria’s West Gippsland. She completed environment and international development studies, and journalism before becoming a secondary school teacher. Writing has always been a constant, through each degree, career change, overseas trip and the birth of her two children. Finally, she took the plunge and did what she’d always wanted to do – write a book.

Hello, Goodbye is her first novel. She has been awarded an Australian Society of Authors Emerging Writers’ and Illustrators’ Mentorship for her fiction writing, and has been shortlisted for Hachette Australia’s Manuscript Development Program and Varuna’s Publisher Introduction Program. Her short stories have been short listed for a number of literary awards, including the Alan Marshall Short Story Award, Overland’s Fair Australia Prize and the Elyne Mitchell Writing Awards.

She is currently completing an Associate Degree of Professional Writing and Editing at RMIT University. Her second novel is due for release with Allen & Unwin in July 2018.

When she isn’t hunched over her computer, writing, she enjoys letting loose with her wonderful children, family and friends.
