Stacey Winch has written since childhood, but has created very little for public consumption. She has decided to change this by creating a collection of works based around the theme of domestic violence. She hopes, by writing stories in a variety of forms and genres, to reach a wider audience, thereby taking the discussion of domestic violence to the many rather than the few. She is documenting this as a post-graduate research project through the University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia. Her supervisors are Dr Paul Williams and Professor Gary Crew. Stacey teaches academic writing and professional communication skills to under graduate and post graduate students. She is a survivor of domestic violence.
