2013 Pascall Prize Recipient - Dr Kerryn Goldsworthy

Dr Kerryn Goldsworthy

Australian 'Critic Of The Year'

Dr Kerryn Goldsworthy is a writer, critic, reviewer, essayist, columnist, fiction writer and blogger who writes fortnightly short reviews of fiction for The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, and also reviews regularly for Australian Book Review and the Sydney Review of Books. She has been reviewing not only books but also occasionally television, movies and theatre for over 30 years.

She taught at the University of Melbourne throughout the 1980s and most of the 1990s, lecturing in Australian literature, creative writing and 19th century literature, before a mid-life career change to perilous freelancing brought her home to Adelaide. A former editor of Australian Book Review, she has been a judge for many literary awards including the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Miles Franklin Literary Award, and was chair and convenor of the judging panel for the inaugural Stella Prize. She is the editor of four anthologies of Australian writing and the author of three books, of which the most recent, Adelaide, was shortlisted for the 2012 National Year of Reading Awards and the Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards.
