For The Love of Writing

The 50th anniversary year of the Society of Women Writers Victoria is being marked by a week-long writers’ festival, beginning on Valentine’s Day.

I’m involved in this festival – I’m introducing a poet, hosting a discussion panel on writing for theatre, presenting a session on sonnets, and reading a bedtime story for children.

Details of the full programme can be found on the society’s website, here

‘I Protest’ Anthology

My poem ‘Shame the Devil’ appears in the Ginninderra Press anthology ‘I Protest’, subtitled ‘Poems of Dissent’.
‘In these poems of protest and dissent are to be found anger, anxiety, compassion, insight and sharp observation, expressed in the way that is the special gift of poets. There’s humour, too, to leaven the more serious poems.’

The anthology is available here.
The poem can be found on the ‘Extracts’ page of this website.
