Arion Amity is a 19-year-old living in between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. After writing her first short story in grade 3 she was set: writing was what she wanted. Hundreds of half filled notebooks and enthusiastic English assignments opened up a new world of writing for Arion that blossomed into a love for not just stories, but the capability to assert ideas and issues that she cares about. After an Auslan course and a short lived stint at ACU for a semester studying a Bachelor of arts, Arion is hoping to get more of her work out into the world and start to be more involved with the creative processes going on around her.
