Tais Rose Wae

Tais Rose Wae is a poet and weaver living on unceded Bundjalung country. With a complex displaced cultural identification developed through the ongoing process of colonisation, her poetry and weaving alike explore a resilient connection to her Aboriginal ancestry as it is passed on through blood.

Wae was shortlisted for the 2021 Oodgeroo Noonuccal Indigenous Poetry Prize and was the runner-up for the 2020 Nakata Brophy Prize for Young Indigenous Writers. Her work was highly commended for The Wheeler Centre’s The Next Chapter in 2020.

Her poetry can be found published in the Australian Poetry Anthology, Best of Australian Poetry, Knus Magazine, Overland Literary Journal, Paradiso, Running Dog and Westerly.
