Melissa Coffey

Writer- Poet - Performer

A Melbourne-based published writer, spoken word performer & editor, I hold a BA (Hons) in Theatre Studies, minoring in Media Studies. I believe as writers we're always in apprentice to our craft - I seek to continuously develop my work through further learning. My short stories, poetry & creative non-fiction are published (sometimes in cognito) in numerous Australian and international anthologies (The Mammoth Book series, Stringybark Stories), literary journals (Not Very Quiet, Illura Press) and online. An active writer on Medium.com since 2020, my poetry, personal essays & articles are regularly curated & I've been the daily "Featured Writer" in Poetry several times in 2021. As a developmental editor and former theatre director, I enjoy writing about creativity and writing craft. My fiction and poetry often explore themes of desire, power, transformation & sexuality, sometimes via a feminist lens. Passionate about the power of spoken word, I've performed at theatre and spoken word events, exhibitions and festivals over the last two decades. My poems have travelled the world, appearing in art exhibitions from Shiraz, Iran to London and Argentina. A return Feature performer at Melbourne’s "Mother Tongue: Women Speak", I've also been a guest performer at One Billion Rising fundraiser (2014), speaking out against sexual violence towards women. Current projects include working on my first published poetry collection & planning a series of local poetry workshops for women.
