Wright, Jacqueline


    Jacqueline Wright began her career as a teacher/linguist in the north-west of Western Australia working on Indigenous Australian Aboriginal language and cultural programs. She has been published in Mattoid, Bodylines, Summer Reading, Sauce, Tiny Epics and, more recently, Kimberley Stories. She wrote Red Dirt Talking as part of a creative arts doctorate and it was the manuscript for this novel (then titled ‘The Telling’) which earned her the 2010 T.A.G. Hungerford manuscript award. Parts of Red Dirt Talking have been adapted for radio by ABC Radio National’s Airplay, and for stage as part of the Maj Monologues at His Majesty’s Theatre, Perth. Jacqueline currently works as an intern at Magabala Books, an Indigenous publishing house, and as a sports producer at ABC radio, Broome.
