Drew Rooke is currently studying a Bachelor of Arts (Media and Communications) at the University of Sydney. His passion for journalism is founded on a firm belief of the need to report on the powerful and represent the under-privileged. This is equaled only by his love of novels and the important creative and reflective function they hold for writers and readers alike. He has written for The Sydney Morning Herald, The Sun-Herald, The Sydney Globalist and his short story, 'The Emperor and his Palace’, will be featured in the 2013 University of Sydney Anthology. Drew is interning at the University of Sydney's 'Media Hub' at the Sydney Writers' Festival.
