Janice Simpson is a part-time PhD candidate at RMIT University in the School of Media and Communication, who has completed her Confirmation of Candidature. Her creative practice research is focused on adoptees’ connections to place. She is exploring the lyric essay and where that might lead in her creation of stories about place, memory and identity. She is currently working on representing the layers of meaning that make up a person’s story, trying to shape these layers as both physical and narrative representations. Her travel memoir ‘Let Sleeping Dogs Lie’ (2012) was published by Ginniderra Press; her nonfiction piece, ‘The real thing in thirty-four stanzas’ was published in SWAMP magazine (2014); and her novel ‘Murder in Mt Martha’ (2016) was published by Hybrid Publishers
