ABOUT


Hello!
You have reached the blog of Simmone Howell. I'm a writer and PhD candidate at La Trobe University. My area of research includes shared culture, dream-lives, life-writing and the teenage experience. I write YA fiction (see list of published works below) and occasional non-fiction about memory, pop culture, dream-houses and ways to map the self. I also teach creative writing and over the years have facilitated creative workshops for people of all ages, through schools and libraries. I live in Melbourne and dream of everywhere else. 

There's a contact form for general hellos.
