Named after Dame Enid Murial Lyons, the first woman elected to the Australian House of Representatives and to serve in Federal Cabinet, the ENID Network is an online platform which aims to inspire and support university women of all backgrounds. ENID is especially proud to offer opportunities and give space to work by emerging writers.

The ENID project was originally started by Nina, Adri and Honey in 2016 when they were students at the University of Sydney. Together, they built up the platform with a significant online following dedicated to helping high-school students to ‘Aim High and Think Big’.

In 2019, ENID was passed on to Kate and Amy, who transformed the network into a space for female-identifying and non-binary university students to share their stories.
In its current iteration, ENID is an online publication with a strong focus on intersectional feminist issues, as well as personal experiences. Our goal is for ENID to be a place where women’s voices on a huge variety of topics are celebrated, and where content is shared that can empower and inform women within and beyond the university community.

Originally from Tasmania, Rose loves writing and editing, and has a secret wish to one day become a professional food critic. When she’s not working, you’ll find her rock climbing, yoga-ing, swimming, cooking, painting or travelling to some far-flung country. She’s also obsessed with hummus.



Rosie may call Sydney home now, but she originally hails from the small town of Geraldton, Western Australia. She received first class honours in literature for her thesis on performance poetry. When she does eventually stop studying, Rosie suspects she may be the first ever poet / physiotherapist.



Lucja is a Religion and Philosophy student from King’s College London (KCL) who was on exchange at the University of Sydney during 2019/20. She has written publications for KCL’s The Tab and Amnesty International, as well as contributing to ENID. Lucja is far too disorganised for someone who claims to be organised and devotes way too much time to her bunny.



Wen hails from Taiwan, a subtropical island on the pacific rim. She writes short stories, occasionally poetry, and it is taking her forever to finish a novel. When she is not shapeshifting in daydreams, she can also be found on Netflix, volleyball courts, coastal and forest trails, or her reading couch.



Born and raised at the beach, Caitlin believes her ridiculous knowledge of musical theatre and modern history will one day land her a dream job. Until then, you will find her with a G&T or an actual tea reading all the books in her personal library and buying more at an unstable rate. Currently doing a Masters in Creative Writing, Caitlin does often too many things at once. Currently, this includes ice-skating, re-reading old Taylor Swift lyric booklets, and taking Polaroids.
