Tracy Crisp is an Adelaide-based writer. She is the Convenor of Amnesty International Australia’s Diversity Steering Committee. She has been involved with Amnesty in both Australia and New Zealand since she was at school.
Her first novel, Black Dust Dancing, to be published in 2008, explores motherhood as an impetus for activism. In the lead up to her mid-life crisis, Tracy started performing stand-up comedy – she was a national finalist in the 2007 Raw Comedy Competition, performed in Amnesty International’s Stand up for your Rights, and performed in two shows at the 2007 Adelaide Fringe. She is working on her first solo show She’s not just quiet … she’s dead.
