Associate Editor: Lynda Renham-Cook
Lynda Renham-Cook has been writing for as long as she can remember and had her first work published in a magazine at age nine and has continued writing in various forms since. She has had several poems published as well as articles in various magazines and newspapers. Recently she has taken part in radio discussions on the BBC.
She has studied literature and creative writing courses and has a blog on her web page and is in the process of completing her third novel. Other works have been published online.
Lynda previously lived for some years in the Middle East and during this time discovered she could not have children of her own. She has since worked tirelessly to highlight the difficulty childless women face integrating themselves in a society where family life is highly valued. She lives with her second husband and cat in Oxfordshire, England.
Her recent novels include ‘The Cello’ (a fast moving chick-lit novel), ‘A Crown of Thorns’ and ‘Wedding Cake to Turin’. ‘A Crown of Thorns’ is available as an ebook and can be downloaded from a number of Internet sites. It is a highly emotionally charged contemporary novel featuring love, death and the crisis of sexuality and religious faith. A Crown of Thorns has been described by Oxford professor John Bayley as ‘very publishable’, and ‘a page turner’. Lynda’s latest novel is ‘Wedding Cake to Turin’.
Associate Editor: Creatrix Tiara
Creatrix Tiara (formerly Tiara the Merch Girl) has transformed from fan webmistress, to alternative education activist, to her current form of emerging performance artist and artsworker. Through her many interests and activities she has maintained strong principles of encouraging diversity, entrepreneurship, rethinking assumptions, and challenging stereotypes.
As a performance artist she delves into personal experiences and observances to create work that breaks away notions of her as the "Exotic Other", presenting herself as a whole person with complex aspects - from her relationship to Islam growing up to her fondness for Savage Garden.
She openly speaks up on cultural representation and appropriation within burlesque and other fringe performance art, which has both caused controversy amongst conventional established names but has also garnered support from other minority performers and participants.
Tiara aims to channel her interests, passion, and energy into providing more opportunities and exposure to creative people from underrepresented backgrounds and levels, while moving away from conventions that do not suit her community.
Associate Editor: Tiffany Lowana
Tiffany Lowana is on a tour of the senses. She has been pegged as extreme, a textbook Scorpion, eccentric and uncompromising when it comes to animal rights. When she graduated with a Bachelor of Professional Writing, she spent some time at two girly mags she’d rather forget.
Foot cramped in door, she found her home writing regularly for Lesbians on the Loose, intoxicated by the chance to pick the minds of her favourite writers Dorothy Porter, Emma Donoghue and Fiona McGregor.
Writing and reading her first but enduring loves, she has since fallen for photography, tattoos, Paris, opera and most things red. She has seen most of Europe and graduated with a second major in Koori and Jewish History and an unshakeable belief that Raymond Carver was a genius.
Based in Sydney, Australia, Tiffany’s commissioned writing assignments include pieces for Whales Alive, the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) and Urchin Books. She was co-creator of the first Inner West Writers’ Festival SLAM! Perilous Text Uprising.
Horrified by intolerance, poverty and indifference, she is also appealing to the higher goddesses for a Vegan Revolution. But she does get splashed by the beauty of life when she looks at her nieces Maddie and Charli or strokes a gutsy little cat called Chicken.
