Lesley Beasley

Lesley first came to Varuna for a Longlines masterclass and in 2007 she was on the Longlines selection panel. In previous incarnations she has been a short story writer, poet and award-winning book reviewer. These days she is more than a little obsessed with both a history and a novel set in colonial Australia. Lesley has an MA in creative writing and a passionate belief that every story is worth telling, although she has yet to start on her own.
