Manal Younus is a writer, performance poet and creative producer. As a Muslim woman with Eritrean origins living in Australia, the young artist discovers and strengthens her identity while inciting thought and discussions amongst her audiences in schools, workplaces, conferences and communities.

Her background in community work has seen her create inclusive, progressive spaces. In 2015 Manal self-published her first book of poetry titled Reap and has since travelled the country and internationally performing her work. She has been featured at Adelaide’s TedX Conference, appeared on ABC’s Q&A and represented Australia at Malaysia’s Georgetown Literary Festival
