Mairead Rodgers


Email: mairead.rodgers@theaustraliatimes.com.au

I have had a passion for reading and writing from a young age. From endlessly supplying my parents with new fairy tales, to frustrating my high school teachers with 75-page long fictional stories. I finally found my place studying a Bachelor of Arts in professional and creative writing at Deakin University, from which I graduated with distinction in 2015. I hope to one day publish one of my many novels, which I'm usually working on when not baking mad creations in my kitchen or dreaming of future travels. Until then, I plan to write until my heart's content-- which it never will be.

Rachel Yeo


Email: rachel.yeo@theaustraliatimes.com.au

Ruminator and playlist junkie, Rachel is an advocate for all things sentient - not to mention, a very indecisive being at that. You'll usually find her lost in introspection, or within the joys of music. She finds comfort in chai lattes, band tees, greenery and existential debate. It's safe to say though: Out of all the things in life, the simple luxury of words reaps her the most repose.

Ashlee McCabe

Ashlee is a self-confessed knowledge junkie, habitual learner, spiritual seeker, animal lover, drifter, dreamer, and Law of Attraction advocate. Writing is Ashlee’s passion, it is her form of escape from the real world. She also enjoys yoga and meditation, and is currently completing her final year of a BA in ancient and modern history, with plans of undertaking a post-graduate degree in psychology.

Reader. Writer. Reluctant hipster. Melbourne born and raised, you'll find me daydreaming about starting my novel while eating my way across this great city. When I'm not in a food coma, I like to indulge my passion for the Italian language, trash-TV, and, of course, writing! I love being a part of The Australia Times team; it's exciting being able to add my voice to our talented and diverse community of contributors. Here's to inspiring minds!
