Mez Breeze

In the early 1990’s Mez first started using the Internet to create digital works and she hasn’t slowed since. From those heady days of the 90’s she’s continued to create award-winning digital literature, games, and other genre-defying output as well as teaching/mentoring, archiving, and supporting digital art and electronic literature. Her recent awards include ‘Inanimate Alice: Perpetual Nomads’ winning the inaugural 2020 Readers’ Choice Prize as part of the 2020 Woollahra Digital Literary Awards, while her Virtual Reality Microstory Series ‘V[R]ignettes’ won the 2019 Queensland University of Technology’s Digital Literature Award. In 2019, Mez also received the Marjorie C. Luesebrink Career Achievement Award which: “…honors a visionary artist and/or scholar who has brought excellence to the field of electronic literature.” To know more about Mez’s work, jump to patreon.com/mezbreeze, mezbreeze.itch.io and mezbreezedesign.com.
