Event Details

Syrmo Kapoutsi is an experienced Greek language teacher and children’s author. She was employed by the Greek Ministry of Education and worked for several years in secondary education. In 2019 she was seconded by the Greek Government at the General Consulate of Greece – Education Department in Melbourne. She lives in Melbourne, teaches Greek in a variety of public, private and community schools, and writes stories for children. Her fictional stories are inspired by Greek mythology, human rights, and issues of the modern world.

Her series of Greek mythology, published by Diaplasis publications, has been consistently at the top of the preferences of Greek readers in recent years. Its success led to the translation of the series into English, French, Italian and German, and the books are included in the bookshops of the largest museums and archaeological sites in Greece.
