Indrani Perera is a poet, publisher of the Pocketry Almanack (www.pocketry.com.au) and a self-confessed book geek obsessed with reading, researching, writing, editing, designing, printing, making, binding and collecting books. When she doesn’t have her nose stuck in a book you'll find her trying not to pulverise the opposition during family games nights or riding along the Ferny Creek trail. You can follow her on Instagram (@indraniperera).
Indrani has had two collections of poetry published by Ginninderra Press (Defenestration and Pas De Deux) and in early 2019 she published the limited edition, hand-bound poetry chapbook Wild Heart which is available in her shop.
Her photography and articles on making have been published in Taproot, Womankind, The Mulberry Journal and Otherways. In 2017 she won the Elyne Mitchell Writing Awards Bonus Non Fiction prize for her piece, This Country.
Indrani has also written two e-books on creativity which you can download for free.
She has been hooked by the spoken word bug and spends evenings attending gigs in and around Melbourne, performing on the open stage. Check out the events page to see her live or attend one of her workshops.
