Hi there! I'm Catherine Bouris, and I'm 24 years old and from Sydney, Australia. I received my Bachelor of Arts in American Studies and History from the University of Sydney in 2015, and am currently finishing a Master of Publishing there.
As a freelance writer, I have written for the Saturday Paper, Sydney Morning Herald, Overland Literary Journal, The Vocal, AWOL, Everyday Feminism, Honi Soit, Daily Life, PopSugar, Archer Magazine, the Star Observer and news.com.au. I am currently a writer for GOAT, Nova’s mobile-only news and culture website.
I created the Young Australian Writers Facebook group, a place for those new to the Australian media and publishing industries to network, seek advice and feedback and learn about new employment and writing opportunities. I'm currently also the Community Manager for Writers Bloc. For more of my employment and education history, check out my LinkedIn.
I have been interviewed on ABC Radio National, FBi Radio, the Friend of Marilyn podcast, and for Honi Soit, Mumbrella and The Regal Fox, and featured in a list of 15 women doing amazing things on Pedestrian.TV. I appeared at the Emerging Writers' Festival as an artist in June 2017, and at the National Young Writers' Festival as an artist in September 2017.
