About

Dasha Maiorova: Sydney-based writer and artist.

I was born in Minsk, Belarus (then the USSR) and have a particular passion for 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 fragile intersection between victim and perpetrator after a violent crime rattles a Sydney suburb.
