Nicole Melanson

Hi, I’m Nicole. A native Bostonian and former Sydneysider, I now live in Brisbane with my husband and our 5 sons. I write poetry and fiction, as well as essays on feminism, disability, and parenting.

My work has been published all around the world, in print and online, as well as anthologized. I’ve won numerous awards and been shortlisted for many others. I’ve also been the recipient of two development grants from the Australia Council for the Arts.

If you’d like to learn more about my personal writing projects, please visit me at

I am available for poetry presentations and workshops, and offer a wide range of affordable editing services for writers.
