Joan London is an internationally acclaimed, award winning author of short stories and novels.
Amongst many notable literary achievements, in 2015, Joan London was named a Western Australian State Living Treasure, and was also the recipient of the Patrick White Award, for a lifetime’s ‘outstanding contribution to Australian literature’. The judges described her body of work as ‘quiet, poetic prose [that] opens up worlds, both real and imagined, of travel, desire, loss and love . . . London’s nomadic characters travel through space and time affirming through their relationships and varied histories a global humanity.’
My name is Kensal Swift. I am currently exploring what I would like to do for my future. I enjoy creative activities, such as drawing, playing guitar (though I am not very good) and painting models.
