Erin Hortle

About

Erin Hortle is a Tasmanian-based writer. Her short fiction and essays have been published in a range of Tasmanian and Australian publications. The majority of her academic and creative writing explores the ways in which experimental approaches to writing might facilitate new ways of imagining the human’s relationship with the more than human world, with a distinctly feminist bent. 

Topics she writes about currently include ambergris, surfing and surf culture, pelagic birds and octopuses. When she’s not writing, she can usually be found curled up with a book, or floating and drifting in the Tasman Sea or Southern Ocean. The Octopus and I is her debut novel.
