Ginninderra Press ‘Wild’ Anthology

Wild anthologyGinninderra Press is celebrating 10 years in Adelaide with an anthology of poems, chosen from poets published by them.

The anthology is available here.

My poem ‘Invasion’ (published in the Pocket Poets collection ‘Second Person Singular’) is included in the anthology. Two other poets from the Mornington poetry workshop ‘Peninsula Poetica’, Avril Bradley and Ann Simic, are also included. All three of us descended on Adelaide in July, to attend the launch and read our poems.

Kathryn Purnell Poetry Prize

My poem ‘You Are…’ won first prize in the Society of Women Writers’ Kathryn Purnell Poetry Prize. The poem is included in my current collection ‘Lines Waving’, and will also be published in the second edition of the SWWV Journal ‘Sparx’, which is due to be launched at the end of November.

New Book – Lines Waving

Lines WavingWe now have copies available of my new Poetry collection, ‘Lines Waving’. This is my third poetry book, my second full-length collection.

It’s available online at the Lulu site, link here
In due course, it will also be available on Amazon and as an e-book.

The cover design is by my grand-daughter Penelope Ritter-Jones, who did the design for my Ginninderra Press Pocket Poets booklet, ‘Second Person Singular’. It follows a similar structure to my own design for my first collection, ‘Lines Dancing’.

All three books are available through the BOOKS page on this site.
