Lindiwe Nkutha is an author of short stories and a reluctant poet, whose stories and poems have appeared in a number of journals and anthologies. Although trained as an accountant, and working as one, she keeps kindled inside her heart (with varying levels of success) the fire to tell stories as often as she can manage it.
She is fascinated and inspired to tell these stories by the world, and the quirky and eccentric people that populate it.
Although born in Soweto, she now lives in Johannesburg with her wife Lerato, surrounded by their capricious veggie and herb garden.
69 Jerusalem Street was published by Modjaji Books in 2021 and was shortlisted for the UJ Debut Creative Writing Award in 2021.
