Marjorie Pizer (1920 – 4 January 2016) was an Australian poet.

Life[edit]

Pizer was born in Melbourne and studied literature at the University of Melbourne from 1939, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts. Pizer began her working life as a clerk in the public service. She met and married the poet Muir Holburn (q.v.) and they left for Sydney, where they became members of the Communist Party (until the invasion of Hungary). In 1947 they set up Pinchgut Press in a spare room. She was enamoured of poetry since a young age before beginning to compose her own works.[1]
