Bruna Gomes is an Australian-Brazilian novelist and poet. Her writing digs up cultural and emotional history to plant it with new seeds. She is drawn to works that are de-westernised, de-colonised, and authentic to the intersectional human spirit. Bruna was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and grew up on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia. She is currently completing a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Creative Writing at Macquarie University. Bruna believes that good writing knows the rules of creativity and breaks them in the best way possible. When she’s not writing, she enjoys eating almond croissants, listening to samba music, and reading in the sun.
