Compiling Editor: Lorna Munro

is a multi- disciplinary artist, working with visual arts, poetry, performance, language and writing. She is an educator, broadcaster, emerging playwright, set designer and has worked on several television and film productions. She has been an active member of her community since the age of 13. This dynamic 26 year old proud Wiradjuri/ Gamilaroi woman calls the Redfern / Waterloo area of the inner city, Sydney home, she honours her teachers and elders by passing on what she was taught and she is currently developing and facilitating art/ poetry programs and tours interpreting the history of her local area with young people along with her work with The Red Room Company.  

Lorna has been strongly influenced and nurtured by her activist parents and mentored by many other members of the Black Power Movement, who she affectionately refers to as her Aunties and Uncles and acknowledges the privileged education she has received.

"The stories are short, engaging and very readable"

"An excellent collection which will assist teachers to incorporate Asian and human rights perspectives into the English classroom. An added bonus is that 15% of net sales will be donated to a girls' school in Afganistan"
