Kai Loma, ‘in between’, that’s me, that’s where I write from, my writing inhabits this space. Fiji born with roots in Savusavu and Vanua Balavu, I grew up in Auckland, now I live and work in Melbourne. I’ve written all my life – poetry, prose and short stories. To see our stories brought to life is a privilege, it shouldn’t be, but it is.
“This gift will allow me the opportunity to work alongside, collaborate with and learn from talented and creative Pacific Island women writer/directors. This is the chance for me to take part in the creative process, and strengthen my voice as a storyteller. To afford me guidance on my path as a Fijian Kai Loma female writer.” Sharon Whippy
