Katie McAllister

Secretary (2020 - Current)

Fortunate to have grown up on Menang Noongar Boodjar in Albany, Katie now lives and works on Whadjuk Noongar Boodjar near Galup in Perth.

She was lucky to be a student of the Literature Centre's Young Writer's Days during high school. She is a Fogarty Foundation Regional Scholar, completing her Honours in creative writing at UWA and looking forward to starting her Ph.D. After running debating competitions for students in regional WA, she is working towards her Licentiate in AMEB and Trinity College Speech and Drama, to continue teaching young people to believe in themselves and their voice.

After a brief stint as a brekky radio presenter for ABC Great Southern, Katie is a producer for the Heywire competition - a program that empowers young people from right across regional Australia to share their stories.

Katie joined the Board in 2020.
