Top Ten Oz-Lit Tweeps

It’s Top Ten Tuesday! This week, instead of books, I’ve put together a list of some of the writers/editors/bookish types I most enjoy interacting with on Twitter. If your Twitter feed is a bit dry, these tweeps will liven it up for you.

Matthew Lamb is the editor of Island and tweets on behalf of the Review of Australian Fiction. He’s incredibly well-informed about the state of literary culture in Australia and not afraid to express his opinions.image

Mel Campbellauthor of the non-fiction book Out of Shape tweets about books, films, fashion and all things pop culture. She sometimes gets a bit tetchy about industry goings-on and doesn’t mind saying it. Huzzah!

Virginia Lloyd is a literary agent, writer and editor who shares links to great writing-related content and opportunities.

Ryan O’Neill is the author of the short story collection The Weight of a Human Heart. He tweets (and blogs) about being a short story writer in a world where the novel is king.

James Tierney is interesting, fun and slightly random. He can be scathing, in a good way.

image

Patrick Lenton is just plain hilarious.

Jo Caseauthor of the memoir Boomer and Me is warm and friendly, even in 140 characters and understands Twitter is more like a telephone than a radio – I always enjoy our conversations.

image

Emily Gale is a YA and children’s author as well as the YA guru at Readings, tweeting about writing, family life, biscuits and Benedict Cumberbatch. She has a special place in my heart because she was the first ever person to tweet about Whisky Charlie Foxtrot.

Jennifer Mills is the editor of Overland and founder of Pay the Writers. Her tweets are political, well-informed and witty.

image

Elmo Keep is a little bit exciting and rebellious, providing a healthy dose of outrage, sometimes in ALL CAPS. And she uses ‘colourful language’ which is something I admire deeply because I can’t bring myself to do it.
