Brydie Grace has always thought she would end up a ‘writer.’ When she was growing up in the country town of Leongatha she wasn’t too sure what that meant, except that it had to include trilogies and poems that rhymed in couplets. She stumbled across the Melbourne spoken word scene at Voices in the Attic in March this year and realised you could speak the words you syphon out of you. She hopes to continue using her writing as a cathartic process and, fingers crossed, gets a bit better as she continues to study Philosophy and Creative Writing at The University of Melbourne. She might even be a ‘writer’ one day.
