Liminal Vol. II is sickening in chartreuse with 200 pages of Asian Australian excellence across art, writing & conversations. And it features my first collage: six pages of archival treasures and commentary on Chinatown from the 1800s to the 1980s. Buy it here.
Dinner Party Press’s annual vaguely-Valentine’s Day feminist erotica salon is back, and I’m in the line-up again, this time with Tuesday Atzinger, Kat Capel and Joan Fleming.

Hot off the press! n-SCRIBE 15 is an anthology of 40 works by Darebin writers and artists (including cover artist Tama Sharman) that you can pick up in Darebin libraries, cafes and bookstores for free.Continue reading “n-SCRIBE 15”
A couple of months ago, curator Sophia Cai asked me to pen some fanfiction for Sincerely Yours, an exhibition in collaboration with West Space x Arts Project Australia that explores fannish love and devotion.
So of course, : ‘One night snatch, or Brother Wang’s guide to eating out in Tashkent’. I think it’s one of the best and certainly the most embarrassing thing I wrote in the last six months.
If you’re in Melbourne, the exhibition is on until 6 March 2022 and you can also explore the other online pieces on West Space Offsite.
URST = unresolved sexual tension
RPF = real person fic
AU = alt universe
I don’t see a divide between literary and genre. Writing spec fic and horror connects me to a sense of who I am, my roots and psyche where the world of the real and the world of the unreal isn’t so binary.Lian Low
Lian Low is a writer and a former editor-in-chief of Peril. I interviewed her for Liminal, mining her insights on the queer, the monstrous, and the last thirty years of Asian Australian arts and culture.
Dr Maddee Clark and I are editing n-SCRIBE 15, the City of Darebin’s annual lit mag, and we’re taking submissions from any writers and artists who live, work or study in Darebin. Send in your best fiction, non-fiction, poetry, memoir and artwork before 6 October 2021. Published contributors will receive $100. All the info here.
I don’t know if anyone is ready for this, least of all me, but next Friday I’m making my fanfiction debut at Footscray Community Arts Centre as part of the Smut: Queer Erotic Fan Fiction Salon curated by Sissy Screens.
Here’s a sneak peek of my piece – can you guess who the primary pairing is? (Clue: It’s a crossover fic.)
The event is part of Midsumma Festival and it also features Vidya Rajan, Nkechi Anele, Tali Polichtuk, Zoey Dawson, Alistair Baldwin, Ruby Slippers, Wilk Crate and Zoe Terakes. Auslan interpreted. It’s gunna be hot and nerdy!
