2019 WRITERS

Frankie thought she wanted to write great theatrical works but it turns out variety is the spice of life. Since completing her Master of Arts in Creative Writing (Script Writing) at Victoria’s IIML, Frankie has written plays, short films, stories, instruction manuals, articles, essays and some very bad poetry. Highlights include Together We Make a Nation (an interactive doco about former refugee women) and These are a Few of my Favourite Sings (a play-with-songs/love-letter-to-Julie-Andrews that she forced her sister to perform). Frankie is a staff writer for Capital and Art Zone magazines.
