About Charbel Baini

Charbel Baini was born in Mejdlaya, in the North of Lebanon, in 1951, and migrated to Australia in 1971.
   He is a multi-talented writer whose works encompass poetry, plays, short stories, text books and journalistic articles.
   His first book of poetry, Murahiqa (The Adolescent), was published in Lebanon in 1968 when he was seventeen.
   Since his arrival to Australia, he has written and published several books of Arabic poetry, plays and short fiction. Some of his books have been translated into English, Spanish, French, Urdu, Syriac, and Persian.
   He has also written fifteen plays which reflect an expatriate’s love and concern for his homeland and the continuing suffering which is tearing it apart.
He was working as an Arabic language teacher and devotes most of his time to his writings. He is a regular contributor to Arabic newspapers published in Sydney.
   Charbel’s poetry has won him many prizes including the prestigious Khalil Gibran’s International Award in 1987.
