She is guided by her background and passion in editorial to engage with the collision and uncertainties of cultural discourse.
Having completed her degree in English Literature and Gender Studies (Distinction) at the University of Sydney, Karen has also worked with editorial houses such as The Peahce Project, Astrophe and Demure magazine.
