Ruhi Lee


Ruhi is grateful to the traditional owners of Boon Wurrung land where she writes everyday.

Her book, Good Indian Daughter, is coming out in 2021 (Affirm Press). In 2019, her manuscript was shortlisted for the Penguin Random House Write It Fellowship and earned her a place in the final round of the national Hard Copy program in 2019, run by the ACT Writers Centre. She was also recipient of the Neilma Sidney Literary Travel Fund last year.

Ruhi’s writing has been published in The Guardian, ABC Life, SBS Voices, WILD Magazine, The Big Issue and Kidspot.

Though she is known as the wordsmith in her family, the words she is most proud of are those spoken by her two year old daughter; an avid viewer of cooking shows who, since reading a book on body safety has been going around informing people that, “Jamie Oliver has a penis.”
