Sophie Overett

With a love of storytelling in all its forms, Sophie is inspired by Polyglot every day, not just by the work the company produces, but by the passion of its core team, the innovation of its artists, and the generosity of its audiences. She believes in the power of the arts to create real and lasting connections to others and to the self, and loves getting to see that in action through her work.

Sophie joined the Polyglot team in 2019 and brought with her extensive experience in arts administration and coordination from Queensland Writers Centre and Brisbane Writers Festival. She also came with an eye for policy and procedure writing which she honed as a Document Writer at the Queensland Department of Education.

When she’s not at Polyglot, Sophie is an author. Her debut novel, The Rabbits, was released with Penguin Random House in July 2021.

Acknowledgment of country

Polyglot acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and create, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. For more than 65,000 years, children and families have created and played here, and we are grateful to make our art on this country too.
