Toni Palombi is an Adelaide-based writer and communications specialist. She has worked with not-for-profit organisations in Asia and the Middle East addressing issues such as child protection, media freedom and women’s rights for over 10 years. She currently works for a not-for-profit organisation in Australia and edits and manages the International OCD Foundation blog which seeks to raise mental health awareness though personal stories.
With a passion for life writing, her writing has appeared in publications including the Guardian, Roads and Kingdoms, Emrys Journal and RavensPerch. Her publications include the life stories of young Franciscan brothers written after spending a year living in a thirteenth-century Italian monastery. Her motivation in doing so was to gain a deeper understanding of their decision to ordain at a young age at a time when ordination numbers have been declining.
Palombi holds a Bachelor of Arts in Politics (University of Adelaide) and a Graduate Certificate in Arts (Writing) from Swinburne University.
