Fig is a 17-year-old emerging poet based in Brunswick. They have a deep passion for the arts that blossomed at a young age, growing up in a house full of books in rural Victoria. Their upbringing in the Australian bush greatly influences their work, as well as their experiences as an autistic person navigating a world designed for neurotypical people. Fig’s creative interests also extend to music and visual art, and they are always working on something new.


Fig Russon-Jorgensen reads 'i want to stay/i want to go/the universe is asking for me to come home'
