Sandi Sieger started writing when she was six years old. She has the first journal she ever wrote in, which declared, ‘When I grow up I want to be a writer,’ and included sentiments such as, ‘If some kid ever beat me in a running race, I’d probably bash them up.’
Sandi is now a writer and content creator based in Melbourne. She is the Director and Editor-In-Chief of Onya Magazine, an online Australian lifestyle magazine she founded in 2009, as well as a Forbes Travel Guide Correspondent. In 2011, Sandi founded The Melbourne Writers’ Club.
When not writing, editing or Instagramming her adventures, Sandi can be found co-ordinating Camp Awakenings, a personal development program for Australian teenagers. She is the Director of Camp Awakenings Inc. and manages The CA Store. A passionate Melburnian, Sandi is also on the board of the Yarra River Business Association. Sandi was named one of Melbourne’s ‘Most Influential People’ in 2019.
Sandi plans to remain blissfully content, rebellious and passionate for her entire life. She is not usually very far away from her Moleskine notebooks (yes, plural) or Apple devices (yes, plural). She loves seeing ink marks around her forefinger and has a terrible habit of making lists.
Sandi lives in Melbourne with her husband, son and two chow chows.
