Writers Victoria CEO Lucy Hamilton will step down from the organisation after three-and-a-half years.
“I’m proud of my time at Writers Victoria, and the work the team has delivered in that time,” said Lucy. “We’ve forged exciting new partnerships, attracted new funding streams, and continued to develop our programs in ways that best serve our participants. I have the greatest of respect for our team, our Board members, and members of Writers Victoria.”
In her time at the organisation, Lucy has attracted a number of new partnerships and funding opportunities, in particular for the Writeability Goes Local Program, supporting d/Deaf and disabled writers across the country.
Alex Hammond, Writers Victoria Chair, said: “Writers Victoria has greatly benefitted from Lucy’s passion and empathy as a leader. During her tenure, she deftly managed the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, Lucy has been an advocate for inclusion and has extended Writers Victoria’s support for writers with disabilities and we thank her for all the work she has done.”
Lucy’s last day will be 28 March 2024. Writers Victoria has begun recruitment for a new CEO.
