Sian Prior

Sian Prior is probably best known as an ABC radio presenter, a columnist and critic for The Age, and a musician. But this accomplished public performer is also the author of an acclaimed memoir, Shy. Her book solves the riddle of how someone who has grappled for decades with debilitating social anxiety has nevertheless managed to carve out a series of successful careers in the public eye.

Sian has worked as an environment campaigner, a model, a trade union arts-worker (she foounded and conducted the Victorian Trade Union Choir), a radio reporter and presenter, a newspaper journalist, a TAFE and university teacher, an MC, an event curator, a media consultant and a public speaker. She also a musician and I perform regularly as a soprano and clarinettist.
