There is healing in this poetry.

These are our words.

From our country.

Our lands. Our spirits.

For all the troubles we face every day, we are a passionate people.

When we hear these poems, we know, we are lovers of life.


This anthology of poems was written by twenty-one Arrernte women from the heart of the continent in Mparntwe Alice Springs around the theme of the NT Writers Festival 2019, Lyapirtneme.

It is an important contribution to the growing national landscape of First Nations literature, particularly from remote Australia.
