This site is for YOU
It’s somewhere to find fresh writing, ideas and inspiration. In time I hope it will be somewhere to share your own writing, a place to connect with other writers.
This site is for ME
Because as a writer it keeps me accountable. There’s no point having a website about writing if you’re not writing, right? It’s a place where I can share my love of writing and words, and connect with those who love these things also.
Why Wolf & Word?
The wolf is a fierce, strong animal and a great communicator. By showing up to this space consistently I hope to learn to let go and become the writer I aspire to be.
I want my writing to run wild, just like a wolf.
Who am I?
My name is Alana and I grew up in a small country town in rural Australia, where I spent much time dreaming big dreams, reading big books and writing my heart out.
I studied journalism at Canberra University before returning to the country, where I now live with my husband and our two small children.
I have written for and edited local business and lifestyle magazines, and have had a number of day-jobs including toystore product-demonstrator, telephone customer service operator and supermarket assistant, all of which made me realise how much I’d rather be writing.
I am currently re-kindling my love for writing fiction and poetry, and I am looking forward to setting little pieces of my soul free for you to read here.
I still dream big dreams, read big books and I intend to write my heart out.
