After working in Adelaide secondary schools during the 1970s, Rosemary Sorensen moved to Melbourne where she worked for some time as an advertising copy-writer. Attending Monash University during the 1980s, she completed a PhD on French literature in 1988. In 1989 she replaced Louise Adler as editor of the Australian Book Review and remained in that position until 1994. Sorensen then worked as a reporter for ABC News Radio in Sydney before moving to Brisbane in 1997 as literary editor of the Courier Mail.
