About

Hi.  I'm Katherine Collette.  I'm a writer, living in Melbourne.  My first novel Grassroots comes out with Text Publishing in 2018.  My second, Swallow, will be released in 2019. 

I've been involved in a number of writing development programs, including Hardcopy, run through the ACT Writers Centre (2016).  I was awarded a Fellowship at Varuna, the Writers House in 2014 and in 2015 won the the Gold Coast Writers Association manuscript development competition. 

I'm represented by Jacinta di Mase Management. 

I'm also an environmental engineer.  I work for a water corporation in sewerage planning/design*.

*Yes, sewerage. It's more exciting than it sounds.
