I’m Jessica Stanley, an Australian writer living in London. In 2022, my first novel was published by Picador Australia — set in Melbourne, between two landmark federal elections, A Great Hope is a family saga with a mystery at its heart..!

READ.LOOK.THINK. is the email newsletter for writers and readers that I’ve somehow been maintaining for ten years. Sent out every three or four weeks, each edition contains links to essays, books, first person writing, recipes, podcasts, interiors and more.

I’m on Instagram and Twitter as @dailydoseofjess.
