My name is Fleur Diamond. I have worked as a High School English Teacher at co-educational and girls’ schools for the past 14 years. In senior school English, I teach in both the International Baccalaureate and Victorian Certificate of Education matriculation programs.
A while ago (2000) I completed a PhD at Monash University in an area of English Literature called Feminist Poetics. My thesis is called ‘Rewriting Desire: Gender, Sexuality and Narrative in Lesbian Feminist Poetics.’ It discusses works by Adrienne Rich, Dorothy Porter, Marilyn Hacker, and Jeanette Winterson. I have published work on Jeanette Winterson, Dorothy Porter, J.S. Harry and the Twilight Saga.
Nowadays, I work as a fledgling teacher-educator and literacy researcher.
I live in Melbourne, Australia.
