Minney Richani is an award winning writer and poet whose work explores a deep and personal connection to the Syrian conflict, those afflicted by it and the sense of misplaced identity it has caused. Minney’s writing is influenced by past and current relationships, her clashing Australian/Syrian nationality, her strong views towards any form of discrimination and the constant struggle of finding herself.
Minney’s travel story, memoir and poems have appeared in various publications and media platforms. Currently she is working on ‘Amongst The Grape Vines”, a collection of short stories, shorter short stories and poetry.
I acknowledge the first inhabitants, traditional custodians and rightful owners of this land, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and pay my respects to elders past, present and emerging.
