About me

Born in Poland, Joanna lives and writes in Naarm/Melbourne, Australia. She earns her keep by managing her own community health organisation, while studying Master of Writing and Publishing at RMIT.


Her poems, short stories and novels are informed by a desire for society to see women in a meaningful and equal light. Her writing pursues themes of love, sex and women's right to pleasure. It's often accompanied by sensual art, with both the imagery and words, inviting the senses to embrace life’s soft and hard edges.


Her writing appears in Erotic Review, Lickerish Library, The Emigre, Bowen Street Press and others.

I have been imagining stories for as long as I can remember.

I feel privileged to share them here with you.
