166 Jean Tong - Obliterator1519
Jean comes out - as a fanfic writer. A nostalgic throwback to simpler times, when representation was out of reach and a young writer found fame - and critique - online. Jean Tong is a Melbourne-based writer. Her previous work includes Hungry Ghosts (Melbourne Theatre Company), Romeo Is Not The Only Fruit (The Coopers Malthouse, MICF), and Anti Hero (Monash Centre for Theatre and Performance). She has also presented at the Emerging Writers’ Festival, and published in Peril Magazine and Meanjin. In 2018, she was selected for Screen Australia’s ‘Developing the Developer’ workshop, and for Film Victoria’s TV and Online Concept lab (Plot Twist). Queerstories is an LGBTQI+ storytelling night programmed by Maeve Marsden, with regular events around Australia.
