A Kooma woman, Michelle Buchanan grew up in the south-western Brisbane suburb of Inala. She has spent most of her young adult life writing poetry on observations and interpretation of Aboriginal culture. Michelle's poetry often reflects the realism and emotions of identity and kinship with a heightened awareness of strength and resistance.
