I’m Jane, I’m a writer, a Kiwi and a serial immigrant who now lives in England. In my teens and twenties, I was a New Zealand representative swimmer, holding the New Zealand women’s 200m breaststroke record for four years and swimming for Washington State University in the NCAA. My work usually focuses on issues of identity, political change and the connection between a sense of place and social outcomes. To date, my work has been featured in or recognised by the publications/contests below.
