Bronwyn Blaiklock is a multidisciplinary creative. A graduate of the Elder Conservatorium of Music (University of Adelaide), she has worked as an artistic director, pianist, arts administrator, poet, writer and editor, adjudicator, and educator for over 25 years. Her poetry has appeared in numerous Australian magazines and anthologies and has featured at literary events such as the Overload Poetry Festival (Melbourne), the Short Story Tattoo, and Clunes Booktown. Her first poetry collection, Etching my Initials, was published in 2016 by Melbourne Poets Union. Poet Emilie Zoe Baker called her writing ‘quiet & potent’ with a style that ‘tiptoes into your mind like a reverse thief that leaves little treasure parcels in the imagination’.
Bronwyn is the director of Chisholm St, a live performance space on Wadawurrung county. Chisholm St is an intimate foray into fascinating corners of classical music. Launched in March 2021, this diverse series of concerts by regional musicians and spoken word performers gives you a rare glimpse into creative music-making, up close and personal.
Bronwyn has contributed to state-wide literary initiatives as a board member of Writers Victoria (2010-2014), and she is currently on the Board of the Ballarat Arts Foundation. She is based in Ballarat.
