Emma Size

Emma Size is an experimental non-fiction writer based in Sydney, currently interested in the infrastructures that shape the arts, relationships, sexuality and desire. She’s interested in modes of writing that develop in the commons, as part of a feedback loop of reading and writing– most of her writing in some way references the utopian, DIY politico-poetics of fanfiction. During the Firstdraft Writers Program in 2016-17, she began exploring the politics of the erotic and the erotics of the political through a critical erotic fanfic about her experience of gender politics at art school.
