Robyn Mundy at work in the Arctic

Wild and remote places form a significant part of Robyn Mundy’s life, and her novels. Robyn has wintered and summered in Antarctica, the setting for her first novel The Nature of Ice. Her second novel Wildlight is set on windswept Maatsuyker Island, home to Australia’s loneliest lighthouse, where she and her partner spent ten months at volunteer caretakers and weather observers.

For over 20 years Robyn has worked seasonally as a ship-based tour guide in Antarctica, Svalbard, East Greenland, the Norwegian coast and wild Scotland. Her numerous visits to Svalbard in the High Arctic inspired her new 2021 novel Cold Coast. At home in Tasmania, Robyn guides nature-based treks, writes, tutors and mentors students of creative writing.

You can catch Robyn at the session Writing the Remote, with Melissa Manning.
