Felicity is a poet and critic living on Wangal land. She is the author of A Kinder Sea (UQP), Vanishing Point (UQP) and the chapbook Seastrands (Vagabond), published in Vagabond Press’ Rare Objects series. She edited Thirty Australian Poets (UQP). She has a PhD from the University of Sydney and is a widely-published essayist and critic and finalist in the 2024 Walkey’s Pascall Prize for Cultural Criticism. She was Poetry Editor with UQP for nine years who continues to mentor other writers and edit poetry for several publishers. Reading, writing, editing and exploring poetry daily, Felicity thinks of Carl Phillips words: ‘I do think of poetry as somehow engaging with mystery. I think it's a mystery to be a human being and to figure out what to make of being in a body for whatever number of years that we get. And poetry, to me, is an expression of that mystery.’
