Stephanie Green is an Australian writer and lecturer in the School of Humanities, Languages and Social Science at Griffith University and Program Director for the Graduate Certificate in Creative and Professional Writing. The study and practice of narrative is a central focus for her teaching and research. As a writer, she puts her ideas into action by imagining new ways of being, now and for the future. As a scholar, she studies the ways that stories show us to ourselves, especially how we are gendered, and how writers and transmedia producers portray new ways to be human, and even ab-human, in a post-globalised world. Stephanie writes memoir and historical biography (2013, Pickering & Chatto). She publishes short fiction, poetry, essays and cultural journalism in journals such as TEXT Journal, Griffith Review, Axon, Overland, and a variety of anthologies and collections. She contributes to the International Prose Poetry Project, supported by the International Poetry Studies Institute (UC) and has a sole-authored collection of prose poems, Breathing in Stormy Seasons (Recent Work Press, 2019). She previously produced a collection of short fiction entitled Too Much Too Soon with Pandanus Press (2006) and a selection of poetry, Shadow Memories, to accompany an exhibition of associated drawings by Melbourne artist James Yuncken (2015). Her writing has also been recognised in numerous literary awards, including The Age Short Story Award (1991) and the Hal Porter Short Story Award (2012). Her recent creative research publications include, ‘The Scent of Things: Travel and the Traces of the Past’, in ‘Re-mapping travel writing in the 21st century’, Text Journal Special Issue 56 (October 2019) which Stephanie co-edited with Professor Nigel Krauth and Stefan Jatschka. As a member of several international collaborative research projects she is a member of a research funded by a Danish International Research Network, ‘Imagining the Impossible: The Fantastic as Media Entertainment and Play’, led by A/Prof. Rikke Schubart (SDU), supported by a Danish Independent Research Fund grant (2018-2020). As one facet of this research, Stephanie co-edited a Special Issue of Continuum Journal with Amanda Howell (GU) & Rikke Schubart. ‘'As if': Women in Genres of the Fantastic, Cross-Platform Entertainments and Transmedial Engagements’ Continuum Journal 33.2 March 2019. She is, in addition, engaged in ongoing collaborative projects with Agnieszka Stasiewicz-Bieńkowska (JU) and David Baker (GU) with whom she co-edited Hospitality, Rape and Consent in Vampire Popular Culture (Palgrave-Macmillan, Nov 2017). Stephanie teaches a suite of post-graduate writing courses and supervises doctoral, masters and honours candidates in creative writing and literature.
