Irina Frovola

Irina Frolova is a Russian-born Australian poet who lives in Lake Macquarie with her three human and two feline children. Irina’s poetry is intercultural, feminist and largely auto-biographical. Her writing explores human psychology, cultural identity, womanhood, relationships and connection to nature. You can find her walking by the lake, at local poetry readings and on “old people’s social media” (according to her teenage daughter) aka Facebook.

Poetry at the Pub is on the 3rd and 5th Mondays of the month. Mostly.
