Paris has been on the judging panel for the Living Stories Writing Competition 2022. She is a WestWords AlumniFrontier Poetry scholarship recipient and a WestWords in-house writer-in-residence.

Paris was chuffed to have won the Poetry category of the New England Thunderbolt Prize for Crime Writing 2022. Her prize-winning villanelle, 'A Cautionary Tale', may be read here.

Paris' poem 'Neon Slipstream' was shortlisted for the Hammond House International Literary Prize 2022. It will feature in the upcoming anthology.

Paris was delighted to have been awarded a WestWords-Varuna Emerging Writers' Residency at the beautiful Varuna National Writers' Centre. It was an extraordinary, creatively enriching experience for her. A WestWords Mini-Masterclass Podcast from Paris' week at Varuna may be found here.

Paris is extremely grateful to have been awarded a poetry mentorship as part of the Arts Access Australia Mentorship and Professional Development Program 2022.

It was an honour for Paris to have been named runner up in the Writing NSW x Varuna Fellowship 2022. She was the only poet amidst longer-form writers to have been selected.

Paris was thrilled beyond words to have been awarded a WestWords/Copyright Agency Cultural Fund Fellowship 2023. With this Fellowship, Paris' dreams have crossed the threshold from being merely wishful hopes to all of a sudden becoming very real! Paris will be using this incredible opportunity to polish her debut collection of poetry, ready to release into the world in the not-too-distant-future. Watch this space!
