Hot Desk Writer
Meet our Alice Springs hot desk writer.
Jacqueline Brady is an Alice Springs-based anthropologist. She works as an advocate, policy and project manager in the non-government sector for local disadvantaged youth.
In 2016 she won a Hachette Mentorship for her manuscript White Fence, a work of historical fiction set in the desert regions of Australia. The book stems from her work as an anthropologist and from a period of recovery from a neurological and musculoskeletal decompression illness she developed while working as a scuba diver instructor in the early 1990s.
Jacqui will utilise the hot desk to complete a first round of edits of her manuscript with input from Hachette mentor, Sophie Hamley.
She looks forward to the quiet, scheduled space, which she hopes will help her to be more disciplined in the editing stage of the book.
Expressions of interest for the next hot desk period, 1 February 2018 t0 1 May, will open in December this year.
