The prose of Coral Hull very much mimics the Australian landscape she describes. Vast and sometimes cruel, her work stops to analyze the lives of small things; she writes about the struggles of children and dogs with passion and tenderness. Her works are bleak and painful, but infused with a love of their subjects.
Coral Hull was born in Paddington, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia in 1965. She is the author of twenty-five books of poetry, prose fiction and digital photography. Her work has been published in literary magazines in the USA, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. She is also the Editor of The Book of Modern Australian Animal Poems, an anthology of Australian poets writing about animals from 1900-1999. She has lectured and read poetry at various venues, festivals and conferences both in Australia and internationally. Take a moment and learn more about her books at the Unlikely Stories Bookstore.
Coral is an animal rights advocate and the Editor of Thylazine, an electronic literary journal featuring articles, interviews, photographs and the recent work of Australian writers and artists working in the areas of landscape and animals.
