Madeline Bailey is a 20-year-old undergraduate student at the University of Melbourne, where she studies anthropology and creative writing. She grew up in Tasmania and won the Future Leaders Writing Prize while in Year 12 at Hobart College. Two of her short stories have since appeared in Voiceworks, and a third is upcoming in their summer 2016 issue. As Madeline alternates between critical and creative projects, her academic and poetic pieces tend to infiltrate and inform one another. She is interested in experimenting with how analytical and expressive forms blur.
