Jessica Walton

Jessica Walton is a writer, teacher, parent, daughter of a trans parent, and proud queer disabled woman. In 2016 she wrote Introducing Teddy: a story about being yourself to help explain gender identity in a simple, positive way to her kids. Introducing Teddy began as a Kickstarter project, but has now been published internationally by Bloomsbury and translated into nine languages. In 2017, Jessica completed a Writeability Fellowship with Writers Victoria, using poetry to explore her experiences with cancer, amputation, disability and pain. Jessica also writes comedy for TV, and occasionally performs musical comedy on stage.
