Hello and welcome

My name is Nat Newman. I’m an Australian writer, actor and tour host, and I also tutor creative writers at the Australian Writers’ Centre.


My debut novella, The Office of Dead Letters, is out now!

I’ve had my short fction published in many excellent journals and I regularly perform poetry at events around Australia.

In 2017, I was the Pacific winner for the Commonwealth Short Story Prize and my story “The Death of Margaret Roe” was published by Granta.

I have also been published in Under the Radar by Nine Arches Press, Shoreline of Infinity, Severine, Diva Magazine, Structo, Brittle Star Magazine, The F Word, Headstuff, Literature Works, LOTL, Opus, New Mardi Gras Short Story Competition and The Disappearing.

I’m always working on several short stories and right now I’m also editing the sequel to The Office of Dead Letters. My latest YA manuscript was longlisted for the 2022 Mslexia novel competition and I’m currently looking for its forever home.
