Elizabeth Tan

Elizabeth Tan is a writer from Perth. In 2015, she completed her PhD in creative writing at Curtin University. Her thesis investigated the intrusion of science-fictional tropes and iconography onto our current social reality, and the cultural anxieties that this has produced. This practice-led research culminated in Tan’s first novel Rubik, published in 2017. Tan’s fiction has appeared in Voiceworks, Westerly, The Lifted Brow, The Sleepers Almanac, Overland, Seizure, Best Australian Stories and Tincture. She is also the creator of Mais Pourquoi, a webcomic.
