Sharlene Allsopp


Sharlene Allsopp was born and raised on Bundjalung country and dreams of capturing that elusive perfect sentence—preferably liquored up in a Champagne field in France. She studies Writing and Literature at the University of Queensland, and loves her role as an occasional tutor with the ATSIS Unit on campus. She developed her debut novel as a fellow with The Wheeler Centre’s Next Chapter program.

Her novel-in-progress was also shortlisted for a 2019 Overland writing residency, and Highly Commended for the 2020 Boundless Indigenous Writer’s Mentorship. She co-founded a charity for domestic violence survivors, and currently lives in Brisbane with her husband, sons and daughters, and the love of her life—a fluffy ball of puppy called Morty.
