My name is Melissa Lane. I’m currently completing a Master of Publishing and Communications at the University of Melbourne.

I’m passionate about all things literary and creative. I completed an English Honours degree last year with a thesis on Pre-Raphaelite poetry. I would love to do more research into Victorian literature and its cultural afterlife in the future.

I’ve been reading for as long as I can remember and became fascinated with language and literature in high school, after discovering works such as To The Lighthouse, The Great Gatsby and ‘The Lady of Shalott’.

I dabble in art, creative writing, calligraphy and photography in my spare time. You can see some of my drawings in ‘Illustration’.
