Biography

Dasha Maiorova is Sydney-based writer and artist, she lives and creates on Dharawal Country.

I was born in Minsk, Belarus (then the USSR) and have a significant interest in Eastern European writing. I’m currently polishing my first novel Birch, a contemporary gothic with a literary edge set in Saint Petersburg. In 2015, Birch was long-listed for the Richell Prize for Emerging Writers. 

My next manuscript, Bury the Sun, examines the intersection between victim and perpetrator after a violent crime rattles the life of an outsider in a small Sydney suburb.

I paint writing. To view current art projects, visit my Art page.
