Australian poet and teacher. Since the 1970s she has participated in feminist activism, small press publishing and has taught art, English and English as a Second Language at secondary schools. A concern with marginalised aspects of women's lives runs throughout her writing. Her novel The Western Horizon was serialised in HEAT magazine from 1996 to 2000 and is now available online.
Sy Scholfield quotes “From work in progress” by Anna Couani in "Frictions, an Anthology of Fiction by Women" edited by Anna Gibbs and Alison Tilson (Spinifex, 1983), p. 49: "I'm an aries with aquarius rising and pisces moon ... The reason I'm a writer is because of the mercury/moon conjunction, so important in a writer's horoscope. And on the other hand, although groups of people are so important to me, my conjunction of saturn, mars and pluto in leo, directly opposite the aquarius rising make me a constant, almost impervious and irresistable force for other people..."
