    Michelle Aung Thin's first novel, The Monsoon Bride, was shortlisted for the Victorian Premier's Literary Awards as an unpublished manuscript and won a Readings Foundation/Wheeler Centre Fellowship. She has a PhD in Creative Writing, has published fiction and essays in various journals, and worked in advertising copywriting. Michelle was born in Burma, emigrated to Canada as a young child, and now lives in Melbourne. She will use her time at New Zero Art Space in Myanmar to write about belonging and homeland. This will form her second book about Myanmar and will combine historical and travel writing with personal essay form.
