Spiri Tsintziras


Spiri Tsintziras has a keen interest in people and their stories. Her background is in social work and freelance journalism. She has worked in marketing, publishing and policy roles for more than 15 years and now runs the communications business Writing Spirit.

Spiri has had numerous stories about food, family and connection published in the Age, and is the co-author of Parlour Games for Modern Families, the winner of the Australian Book Industry Award for Book of the Year for Older Children (2010). Her latest book, Afternoons in Ithaka, is about Spiri’s culinary, creative and spiritual journey, which propels her from a tiny backyard in inner city Melbourne, to a tiny village in southern Greece and back again.
