ABOUT MEG MCKINLAY

  • I’m a children’s writer and poet based in Fremantle, Western Australia. I’ve published twenty books for young people ranging from picture books to Young Adult novels, as well as poetry for adults. My work has won a number of awards, including three Crystal Kites for the Australia/New Zealand region – for the picture books Ten Tiny Things (illust. Kyle Hughes-Odgers; 2012), How to Make a Bird (illust. Matt Ottley; 2021) and the middle-grade novel Catch a Falling Star (2019). I continue to beaver away quietly, knocking words out of rocks.

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • I like art. And I enjoy making statements. Except for this one.
