Meg Dunn is a Melbourne poet who has performed at and run poetry gigs since last century. She won the Melbourne Fringe Award 2003 for her one woman show Brave which brought accolades for its narrative and musical style. She has toured internationally as a poet and a founding member of Zeal Theatre. She formed the pirate outfit Whore Island and her publications include Great Northern Reality and Wet Fingers.

Her performance style has been described as ‘a trapeze artist under water’ (Eaze Multiarts). Steve Smart says that ‘Meg Dunn is one of the great unsung Australian writer/performers. She has a vibrant sense of place and culture without losing sight of the personal moments that bring these elements together.’ Meg recently returned to Newcastle where she co-founded Poetry at the Pub, she is back in the bosom of her beloved Pacific Ocean working on a poetry album about ten years in bohemia.

Meg appears in The Brunswick Street Strip.
