Scott Woodard

Scott Woodard worked in train stations, call centres and bookshops around Melbourne, before landing his first commercial radio gig in outback South Australia.

Across seven years, three states and six radio stations, he’s raced pantomime horses, annoyed reality TV stars, tossed thongs with politicians, copped abuse from puppets, MC’d music festivals, broadcast through fires and floods, championed communities around Australia, and played a lot of Ed Sheeran.

Scott holds a Bachelor of Creative Writing from RMIT under the tutelage of Toni Jordan. His debut chapbook You Haven’t Found Anything was published in 2015, and is still available in all good landfills. He’s an ardent advocate for youth mental health, and his comedic fiction emphasises the importance of empathy, self-acceptance and independent thinking for an Australian teenage audience.
