Author / Presenters: 
Vanessa Craven

Poems about life, plants, trees, people, and things that happen to people. Songs original with a story behind them. Growing up in India as an Angl-Indian, memories in the Himalayas people and places in Australia…

Vanessa Craven hales from Mussoorie in the Himalaya Mountains. She now lives in Daylesford, having made the tree change from Melbourne a few years ago. Music, art, poetry and writing short stories with a zing is her thing! Her poetry resonates with people’s experiences and connections are made one way or another – words of which there are many – but the right ones make it to the top.
