Michelle Law is a freelance writer based in Brisbane, Australia. She writes for magazines, journals, newspapers, film and television. She is the co-author of the comedy book, Sh*t Asian Mothers Say, and has had her work anthologised in books like Women of Letters and Destroying the Joint. Some of the places she’s written for include the Sydney Morning Herald, Daily Life, frankie magazine, and the Griffith Review. As a screenwriter, she has received an Australian Writer’s Guild AWGIE award for her interactive media work, and had her films screened on the ABC and at film festivals locally and abroad. Last year, she won the Queensland Premier's Young Publishers and Writers Award. This year, her first play Single Asian Female will be staged at La Boite Theatre Company. In her spare time, Michelle enjoys hanging out with her cat and tending to a very aggressive tropical fish. (Just the one – it’s eaten all of the others.)
