About

My name is Eliza Cussen and am one of three Australians living in Madison, Wisconsin (I counted).

Fix It, Dear Henry is an outlet for narrative nonfiction, funny stories and rage against the patriarchy. When this blog first launched in 2011 it was shortlisted for the Best Australian Blogs award.

I hope one day to reach a level of success where I’m referred to as “the next David Sedaris”. Which means I might have to bump off Sloane Crosley. Never meet your heroes.

My writing has appeared in such places as Junkee, Women’s Agenda, The Drum and ABC Ramp Up. I work as a communications consultant for non-profits, changing the world one meaningful link at a time. You can find out more about my work (and hire me to do more of it) on my business site: elizacussen.com where you can also contact me.

You can also follow me, @ElizaCussen, on Twitter.

If you’re wondering what the title and bucket cartoon are all about, this song plagued my childhood.

    Hi Eliza, nice blog! Make sure you blog about the USA when you’re over there.

      Thanks, Emma! I’m sure there’ll be plenty of stories to tell from The Cheese State.
