Josephine Wilson

Josephine Wilson is a Perth based writer. Her practice embraces several forms, including on-line hypertext, criticism, fiction and performance. A recent on-line collaboration, Cipher, with Linda Carroli, will be launched in September 1999. In 1997 she participated in a virtual residency, Water Always Writes in *Plural, with Brisbane writer Linda Carroli.

She is currently completing a novel as part of a Masters at the University of Queensland.
