I’ve been listed as one of the finalists in the Hunter Writers Centre ‘Grieve 2017’ competition, and my poem ‘Glass’ will be published in the anthology of the same name.
It’s available here.
My poem in the anthology is one of the set of sonnets that got me shortlisted for the Newcastle Poetry Prize.
It’s on Amazon, link here
I am to be one of three feature poets at the ‘Poetic Inspirations’ event at Emerald Hill Library on August 6th.
I shall also be the guest poet at Di-verse-city Poetry Readings at Surrey Hills on November 6th.
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:
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 to be published sometime next year in the Ginninderra Press ‘Pocket Poets’ series. They are small books of 20 poems each, and my 20 are currently being formatted.
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.)
