New Poetry Book

I have a new poetry publication now available. It’s in the ‘Pocket Poets’ series from Ginninderra Press, and can be ordered from their website, link here:

Second Person Singular

This is the design that my grand-daughter Poppy did for the cover of the book, which is entitled ‘Second Person Singular’.

 

I also have a poem chosen for inclusion in the next Poetica Christi anthology, ‘Imagine’.

My radio play ‘Memento Mori’, has been commended in the Fellowship of Australian Writers Literary Awards.

I am Now The People’s Poet – Official!

I received the People’s Poet Award at the poetry reading and prize ceremony for the Wells Festival of Literature on Sunday, on the strength of the public vote from everyone who bought the booklet of shortlisted poems and the audience at the event. (Sadly, I was in the wrong hemisphere to be there to perform it myself, but somebody read my poem for me.)
