Noela McNamara

Noela McNamara began writing poetry and stories while she was a teenager living on the farming outskirts of Brisbane. She studied literature as a mature-age student, gained several degrees and certificates, and tutored at James Cook University Cairns in English and Indigenous Australian Studies. Now both retired, Noela and her husband share time with their children and twelve grandchildren in Cairns, the Sunshine Coast and Canada. A large family with accompanying laughter and tears, as well as umpteen notebooks of “scribblings” squirrelled away over many decades, inspire her lively imagination to continue to create poems and stories.
