Rosanna Stevens is a writer, researcher, performer, musician, and events producer based in Australia’s capital – Canberra. Before she is any of these things, she is a human.
Her publication credits include The Toast, The Lifted Brow, The Griffith Review, and The Believer. She’s performed sketch and written comedy for shows at The Second City Chicago, The PIT Loft NYC, and Upright Citizens Brigade LA.
She conceptualised and co-founded the literary collective Scissors Paper Pen, and has curated events for National Library of Australia, Emerging Writers Festival and LAMBDA LitFest LA.
Rosanna studied writing at University of Technology Sydney and The Second City, and she’s forming a PhD at Australian National University. It’s really hard – weird, right? She can tell you about her thesis in a prizewinning three minutes, but actually now her project has changed, and surprisingly novelty cheques do not maketh the graduation cap.
She once made an educational podcast as an Artist in Residence, of which the highlight was interviewing Bob Brown.
