Tim Sinclair is an Australian writer who grew up in the Adelaide Hills and currently lives in Sydney. He is a poet and verse novelist. Starting in on poetry publication in journals and magazines in the late 90s, his latest collection, Re:reading the dictionary, a word-nerd’s homage to (a wee fraction of) the English language, was launched at the Queensland Poetry Festival in 2011. He has published a paperback poetry collection, an ebook themed around the oddness of the dictionary, and two young adult verse novels Run (Penguin 2013) and Nine Hours North (Penguin 2006).
Tim moonlights as a freelance editor for his own micropress Cottage Industry, and is the poetry editor of PAN Magazine. He has worked for not-for-profit literary organisations SA Writers’ Centre (Adelaide), Poets House (New York) and in communications at Australian Society of Authors (Sydney). He is currently undertaking a PhD in Creative Writing, exploring young adult post-apocalyptic fiction.
