Writer in Residence

Christine Bell

Christine Bell is a Melbourne fiction writer. Her debut novel No Small Shame is published by Ventura Press (Impact Press Imprint) through Simon and Schuster.

Christine has a long history of writing for children. Writing No Small Shame represented a shift to writing adult fiction and a desire to explore the challenges of ordinary women and how society and cultural expectations changed during the 20th Century.

In October 2019 she was awarded the inaugural HNSA Colleen McCullough Residency for an Established Author. Christine was awarded a Varuna Creative Retreat Fellowship in 2014 for her YA historical manuscript Prison Boy. She holds a Master of Creative Writing (RMIT) and a Diploma of Arts – Professional Writing and Editing.

Christine is now working on her second adult historical novel: the story of a young Australian soldier who stays on in France after WW1 and the traumatic reason he refuses to go home.
