Lyndel Caffrey

Write-ability Program Manager

Lyndel Caffrey is a writer, mentor and historian who has been obsessed with story and storytelling for about the last fifty years. She’s been involved with Write-ability in different ways since its inception and its focus on inclusivity and own voice has shaped her professional practice. Lyndel runs writing workshops for local libraries and loves a good oral history project. She is an award winning author: her novella 'Glad' featured in 'Griffith Review 38' and her historical novel manuscript 'Gunclub' was shortlisted for the 2015 Hachette Australia Richell Prize, but she’s still chasing that elusive publishing contract.
