Another overdue blog post!
But there’s been plenty happening – including a great weekend at Toowoomba for the inaugural USQ Bookcase event. I joined other USQ Alumni in sharing my words and thoughts on poetry – discussing poetry during a workshop panel session with John Koenig, and performing China Bull later in the afternoon on the main stage.
My thanks to the organisers of the event for putting on such a great show – and I’ll most definitely be back next year!
A few of my poems have been finding new homes recently. Bellarine Machines has been accepted for Issue 11 of Page Seventeen and I have a poem shortlisted in the 2013 ACU Literature Prize, and a poem also longlisted in the University of Canberra Vice Chancellor’s Poetry Prize. This is very exciting, given how prestigious these awards are. More news on these soon….stay tuned.
It’s poetry season in Brisbane and if you haven’t gotten your hot little hands on the QPF program yet – I urge you to go visit the website immediately!!! So much goodness packed into one weekend. I’ll be MCing a couple of sessions over the festival and look forward to seeing you there!
