Keeping the Magic Alive: Writing Sagas Guest Dimity Powell


Dimity Powell 2010 (1)It was a real pleasure to catch up with Dimity Powell, who I meet with online every Monday for the Monday Writing Sprint Group.  This was the first time we’ve had a phone conversation.  Her passion and commitment to writing came through like a shining light in the conversation. She even, without me asking, generously gave some writing mentoring, which I was delighted to receive.  It is wonderful to receive feedback from a person and writer you respect.

Dimity was born in Townsville to views of Magnetic Island.  She spent her schooling years in Adelaide, South Australia, learning to hate locust plagues and to love home grown apricots.  She quickly developed a preference for books to people (and locusts) which led to a devotion to writing. 

She aspired to be a Vet because she found animals as compelling and quiet as books but chose a career in Hospitality instead.
