Gabrielle Stroud

Gabbie is a frustrated writer, juggling the demands of work and mothering whilst trying to silence that inner voice that keeps nagging her to write! Varuna is the safe-haven she longs for, where writing can take priority. Her first visit was in 2005 as part of the Young and Emerging Writers Masterclass and she had the privilege of returning again on the Pathways To Publication Program in 2008. As a result of that program, Measuring Up, a novel for YA was published by Scribe in 2009. This was a dream come true for Gabbie who wrote her first novel on the telephone note pad when she was six-years-old! Her most recent stay at Varuna was in 2013 for the Fellowship scholarship and she longs to return again soon…
