Fig Russon


Fig is a budding queer Melbourne poet with interests in art and classical literature.

They spend their time looking after their rainbow lorikeet, Alphie, and writing about funky little gay aliens. Most of their writing is freeform poetry but they also dabble in prose and enjoy reading horribly written Doctor Who fanfics as well as books like The Secret History and Still Life with Tornado, which make them feel very clever and interesting. Fig is nonbinary and hopes to contribute to the creation of spaces for writers like them who exist outside the binary. Some of their other interests include: hurtling through space on a giant rock, playing dress up, and using the Oxford comma.
