Emilie Collyer, who had an awesome piece in the latest Torpedo, has a creative, thoughtful and immediate kind of blog, between the cracks

- Literary Minded


Emilie Collyer is a writer and creative worrier, er, warrior.

Most of her work has a speculative, fantastical or surreal bent. She likes making worlds that are mostly like this one but might make you look twice. Worlds that exist between the cracks. Works that question who we are by imagining how we might be.

A multi-award winning and nominated writer, Emilie divides her creative time between writing for performance and writing fiction.

Emilie lives in Melbourne, Australia, with her partner (actor, writer, comedian, musician, one-man entertainment unit Ross Daniels).

She is a founding member of Punctum and New Working Group and is currently on the Green Room Awards Association Independent Theatre Panel. She is a member of Sisters in Crime and Theatre Network Australia.

Emilie works as a dramaturg, mentor and creative writing teacher. An experienced workshop facilitator, Emilie specialises in generative writing workshops where students - of any age or experience - feel excited about writing and safe to try out new ideas.
