Sandra Renew

Sandra’s ongoing project is the interrogation of gender presentation and the LGBTIQAA gender discourses. Her poetry comments on contemporary issues and questions including war, language, environment, climate and the planet’s health, translation, border crossings, dissent, gender. Her work is informed by many years working in war zones, in Indigenous communities and on the fringes of heterosexuality.

Sandra’s new collections are Acting Like a Girl (Recent Work Press, 2019) and The Orlando Files. Poems of Dissent and Social Commentary for Performance (Ginninderra Press, 2018)
