About Ashley

Ashley Thomson is an editor and writer. His work has appeared in Seizure, Award Winning Australian Writing, Daily Life, Feminartsy and Plaything Magazine.

Ashley lives in Canberra. He served as an in-house editor for BMA Magazine and later for Momentum Books, Pan Macmillan’s digital imprint. He also co-founded and served as the media and communications coordinator for Noted writers’ festival.

This blog is for his writing and reviews. You can find a rationale for the site’s name here. That said, most of his efforts will now be focused on his new project, Homer, so this site may be a little dormant.
