Michael Burge is an Australian journalist, artist, author, designer, digital publisher and mentor who lives at Deepwater in the New England region of NSW with his husband and their dogs.

His full-length titles can be purchased via his online bookshop; his artwork can be viewed online via his art gallery, and his workshops take place regularly at The Makers Shed, Glen Innes, and across the NSW New England region.

Michael’s debut novel will be published by MidnightSun in 2021. He is director of the annual High Country Writers Festival.

His non-fiction debut Questionable Deeds: Making a stand for equal love lifted the lid on familial, institutional and government homophobia in Australia, and was selected for the Brisbane Writer’s Festival.

In a series of hard-hitting articles for Fairfax Media, Intermedia, United News & Media UK, Margo Kingston’s NoFibs, Gay Star News and News Corporation, Michael’s journalism has always covered issues of equality, LGBTIQA+ history, popular culture, politics and pathways for independent artists and writers.

His work explores hypocrisy, disenfranchisement, grief and creative endurance, offering hope of survival and freedom.

Michael also mentors emerging writers, journalists, artists and events. For more detail on his work history check out his LinkedIn profile.
