Biographical Note

John Alan Scott was born on 23 April 1948 at Littlehampton, Sussex, England and arrived in Melbourne in 1959. He received a B.A. Dip Ed from Monash University in 1970 and a Doctor of Creative Arts (DCA) from the University of Technology, Sydney in 1991. During his career Scott was a lecturer in media studies at Swinburne Institute, Melbourne, 1974-1980 and Canberra College of Advanced Education (now the University of Canberra), 1981-1989. Since 1989 he has been a lecturer and senior lecturer in the Faculty of Creative Arts at the University of Wollongong. He has also worked as a radio producer and freelance scriptwriter for radio and television.

John Scott is the author of many books of prose and poetry and his works have been nominated for, and received numerous awards. His poems have been widely published in Helix, Makar, Meanjin, Ear in a wheatfield, Overland, Quadrant, Scripsi and Southerly. Scott's works have been published internationally and appeared in French, Dutch, German, Italian and Chinese translations.

He was a member of the Four Australian Poets reading group that toured the USA and Canada in 1985 and has been a guest at Adelaide Writers' Week, the Melbourne Spoleto Festival and the Canberra Word Festival. In 1990, John Scott was awarded a poetry scholarship by the Australia Council to the Nancy Keesing Studio, Paris at the Cite Internationale des Artes. It was here that he completed the two prose poems 'Elegy' and 'The apology' and began work on his novella What have I written (1993). Although Scott's first novel Blair was published in 1988, he was still essentially writing as a poet and it was Mark Henshaw's (who was also working at the Paris Studio) enthusiasm for the novel as a form that influenced the direction of Scott's writing.

The film of his novella What have I written, for which Scott wrote the screenplay, was selected for the Competition Section of the 1996 Berlin Film Festival and won the 1996 International Mystery Film Festival in Bologna, Italy. The screenplay won a 1996 AWGIE award for best screenplay adaptation and was nominated for an AFI award for best screenplay adapted from another source.
