Other Futures

Ellen van Neerven

Author, editor and educator Ellen van Neerven is of Mununjali (a Yugambeh language group) and Dutch descent. Moving between places and cultures, they write fiction, poetry and non-fiction about Australia’s unreconciled past and precarious present, offering a futuristic imagining of a people whose existence is under threat. Their characters are caught between a desire for freedom and a sense of belonging.

They are currently co-editing Unlimited Futures, an upcoming collection of Blak + Black Visionary and Speculative fiction, with Sudanese multilingual writer Rafeif Ismail.
