  • Writing for Hope

    Iím honoured to have been given the opportunity to perform one of my short stories in support of Knox PLEDGE for gender equality.


    The high tea serves to launch a series of creative writing workshops Iíll be giving next year for survivors of family violence.

Above all, the effort of writing our truth in a form fit for otherís eyes leads to personal transformation and empowerment.

    2017 is set to be an extraordinary year!

    • RESPECT at Pave Festival
      by Isobel Blackthorn



      When musical duo Savannah Rose invited me to speak at their RESPECT show I was honoured and baffled all at once. What would I talk about? With their smooth and dulcet harmonies, Suzanne Diprose and Bree Cleal sing dark and old-school country. Their awareness-raising show depicts how women are portrayed in song lyrics. They are joined by Moonshine Coalition, Heidi & Jules, and The Borrowed Boys. I needed to fit into all that and I dont have a country bone in my body. ...

    • Isobel Blackthorn speaking at Belgrave library Ė feat. Savannah Rose
      by Isobel Blackthorn
      What does an audience expect an author talk event will be like? Will there be a powerpoint presentation? A slide show of images of old drafts, with bits of text crossed out and heaps of writing in the margins? Will the author explain her writing process and provide insights into her creative journey?

    • Lovesick re-released!
      by Isobel Blackthorn
      My memoir, Lovesick, came out in 2011 to popular acclaim. I decided to re-release the book and give it a new lease of life after a friend and high school teacher told me he thought it should be much more widely read.
