Writer's Full Bio

Flora Chol

Flora Chol is a Melbourne based South Sudanese writer, Poet and activist who migrated to Australia with her mother, brothers and sister in 2003. Flora describes herself as ‘an earthly black woman writing in a stream of literary consciousness’. In May 2019 Flora published her debut a Poetic Anthology, Tomorrow’s Dream. 

With writing from an unprovoked sense of creativity, the themes that are explored in her work delve into the complexities in society and the dynamics of growing up as a young South Sudanese woman in the Diaspora. 

As a Pan Africanist, Flora explores many themes and discourses which advocate for a free, self-reliant and self-defining Africa. She embodies these beliefs through arguments which predominately deconstruct present day neo-colonial regimes.
