Who is Angela J Williams?
Who is Angela J Williams?

Angela often describes herself as having lived too many lives for one body. Born into a family rife with addiction,  personality disorders, cyclic child abuse and (only sometimes diagnosed) mental illnesses, she escaped into words as a child, fantasy as an adolescent and heroin as a young adult. Always a thinker, by her mid-twenties Angela had worked out that for her the path out of poverty, disorder and a downhill slide into addiction lay in education. The low-achieving high school dropout packed up her metaphorical baggage and headed off to university.

Angela has worked as a waiter, salesperson, sex worker, glassie, health education officer, dominatrix and very unsuccessful criminal,  but now she makes a living shaping fragile young creative practitioners as a Creative Arts lecturer and tutor at University.

As a writer, Angela ranges across fiction, memoir, creative non-fiction and theoretical rants. She holds an audience well, loves a good argument and talks with her whole body. As a sometimes motivational speaker, she eloquently unpacks the lessons learned from a hard life and emphasises that there’s always a way back, out and up.

 

Angela lives in Sydney, NSW, and is available for speaking, writing and thinking engagements of all sorts.
