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 an interest in Eastern European writing. Birch, my first manuscript, is a contemporary gothic with a literary edge set in Saint Petersburg. In 2015, Birch was long-listed for the Richell Prize for Emerging Writers. In 2020, Birch was runner-up in the Deborah Cass Prize for Writing.
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.
