Bri Lee

Bri Lee is an author, writer, speaker, and editor based in Brisbane.

After graduating from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Law (Hons) and Arts (Mandarin) degree in 2014, she was admitted to the legal profession early in 2017.

Her first book, a memoir called Eggshell Skull, will be published by Allen & Unwin in June 2018. It explores sexism in the legal industry and justice system, and tells the story of how many barriers women—including Bri herself—face when trying to access justice.

On these themes of law and justice Bri has spoken on Radio National: Late Night Live with Phillip Adams, and been published in Griffith Review and elsewhere. She is also currently a Research Assistant to Prof. Jonathan Crowe at Bond University where together they are researching potential legislative updates to improve the way the law treats women.

As the Founding Editor & Co-Director of the quarterly feminist publication Hot Chicks with Big Brains, Bri has produced independent print for almost three years, and is an experienced interviewer and editor. Hot Chicks with Big Brains is a publication “for women who work” and champions all kinds of women and all kinds of work.

Bri recieved a full Commonwealth scholarship to complete her Masters in Creative Writing at the University of Queensland for 2018-2019 during which time she will complete her second book – a collection of personal essays. She was the inaugural recipient of the Kat Muscat Fellowship in 2016, and one of the 2017 Griffith Review Fellows.
