The interview and seven articles in this special issue of Contemporary Women’s Writing have been gathered here by the guest editors as a result of the fifth biennial Contemporary Women’s Writing Association conference held in Melbourne, Australia, 3–5 July 2014. 1 The event, themed “Environments,” showcased scholarly papers, creative presentations, discussion panels, and poetic performances by scholars and writers from across the globe. As the first CWWA conference to be held in Australia – indeed, in the Southern Hemisphere – many participants embarked on a significant quest across oceans to visit the country for the first time, in many cases exchanging summer for Melbourne’s chilly winter backdrop. This was a fitting introduction, perhaps, to a conference set on an exchange of ideas on women’s writing and diverse “environments.”
