I’m Pip Lincolne. I’m a writer. 

I live in Tasmania, Australia and spend my work days reading, writing books and writing this (14 year-old) blog.

I think about food way too much, love making things, drink too much tea.

My new book – Days Like These – is out now!

Thanks for popping by, you bloody champ.

(Scroll down for proper bio, if you can be bothered!)

Welcome to Pip Lincolne’s blog Meet Me At Mike’s, a sometimes daily dose of happiness and inspiration.

Short bio:

Pip Lincolne is a Tasmanian-based writer and crafter. She’s published seven books about mental health, creativity and making things and she would like to write a whole bunch more. She’s Frankie’s craft contributor too! Pip has three kids and a love of toast and tea. Pip likes to make and write every single day. 

In 2016, Pip was part of the activities surrounding Ai Weiwei and Andy Warhol’s exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. She ran five days of kids’ workshops – and helped thousands of families make Wishing Flowers.

Pip was Etsy’s Creative Courage Mentor in 2015 – mentoring hundreds of creatives keen to build or improve their Etsy stores and creative lives.

Pip’s exhibited at Wangaratta Regional Gallery (The PomPom Diaries) and has undertaken a weekend residency and workshops at Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery.

Pip has co-hosted ‘Crafternoons’ with Clare Bowditch on 774ABC (Melbourne radio) several times.
