A woman smiling

Vivienne is a writer and performer, working across media: poetry, performance, science, and written and spoken word. She also performs/records her writing and the work of other writers and has been invited to several festivals, both for writing and for theatre in Australia, UK and USA.

She’s committed to arts development and inclusivity in the community, and run workshops on playwriting, poetry-writing for children in schools, creating work across language and culture, adult creative writing classes, and sessions to help writers perform their work at readings and events. She has a PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Western Australia (UWA), researching representations of science in performance and writing a full-length performance work. In addition to this, she has been an Honorary Research Fellow at UWA.

She has also worked as a project co-ordinator for Out of the Asylum Writers (WA), as a financial officer for Indigo journal (WA) and festival co-director for The Arts Catalyst (London), an organisation that she co-founded with Nicola Triscott in 1993.
