Maria Lewis's picture

Maria Lewis

Maria Lewis got her start covering police rounds in a newsroom as a teenager and has been working as a professional journalist for the past 10 years. Making the switch from writing about murders to movie stars was not a difficult decision. A former reporter at The Daily Telegraph, she also wrote about all things film and entertainment related as the Showbusiness Reporter for The Daily Mail. Her work has appeared in the New York Post, Empire Magazine, WHO Weekly, Huffington Post, The Sunday Telegraph, Spook Magazine, Junkee, Penthouse and BuzzFeed, to name but a few.

She appears on 2SER 107.3 FMs weekly Drive segment Gaggle Of Geeks every Wednesday, talking the latest comic book and pop culture news and every Tuesday Breakfast for TV Talk.  As a proud member of the Graffiti With Punctuation crew a collective of Australias leading film bloggers  she makes up half of the Pod Save Our Screen podcast. She has also appeared on The Feed on SBS 2 discussing film feminism and as a guest for a panel discussion on queer representation on television. She is the producer and co-host of the Eff Yeah Film & Feminism podcast, which looks at feminism within the pop culture sphere.

Based in Sydney, she lives in a house with too many movie posters and just the right amount of humans. Maria can often be found spending much money on comics, watching horror movies at stupid hours, inhaling books on modern feminist theory (aka anything Caitlin Moran touches) and holding on to the one belief she has had since she was five: that unicorns exist. She is most likely Mark Wahlbergs future wife. Most likely.
