Melody Ellis is a writer and early career researcher. She completed her undergraduate studies in fine art at Sydney College of the Arts and a doctorate in creative writing at RMIT University.
Her interdisciplinary writing practice explores an interest in subjectivity, desire, place, the politics of ugliness, and creative research. Melody is interested in exploring the intersections between fiction, memoir and criticism, and her writing is often hybrid and experimental in its form. She currently teaches literary studies in the School of Media and Communication at RMIT University where she is also the Centre Coordinator of the Digital Ethnography Research Centre and is a member of the nonfiction/Lab and CRIMP.
Melody comes from a background in arts management and has worked for: The Biennale of Sydney, the Athens Biennale, West Space, and un Magazine. She has over a decade experience in project management and grant development, and has particular expertise in working with ARC funding applications, where she works one-on-one with applicants from the early stages of their proposal.
